Seniors, it's time to apply for the Lions Club Nathan A. Tirrelll Scholarships. To apply, stop by the Goffstown High School guidance office and ask for a local scholarship application form. The Lions Scholarship Committee places heavy emphasis in their decision upon your community service efforts. Be thorough and explicit in your answers regarding your community service. The committee also weighs financial need and academic achievement in its selection process. Nate Tirrell, the Lion who is memorialized with the scholarships, was a New Hampshire state representative, a New Hampshire state senator and finished his political career as the legislative sergeant-at-arms for many years. He had a long career as a mail carrier, beginning with a horse and buggy, continuing well into the horseless carriage days. But his favorite all-time occupation was being a farmer. He devoted himself to a life of community service, and he attended every Lions Club meeting until a year before his death at the age of 97.
