Scholarships are doled out in lots of interesting ways, but Drew Houser of Northborough, an incoming freshman at Unity College in Maine, has a fascinating tale about one that didn't get awau.
Houser won a year's worth of tuition (worth approximately $18,000) at, of all places, a fishing tournament on Unity Pond yesterday. But the story didn't end there, according to a story in the Waldo County Citizen newspaper's online edition.
Hauser was fishing on the same pond where his father, a Unity College graduate, died in a small plane crash in 1992. Not only that, but Hauser didn't even catch the winning fish.
