AVON TODAY School honors fallen alum Talcott establishes scholarship Special to Today Magazine
TALCOTT Mountain Academy has established an annual scholarship in honor of a graduate who died in a car accident. The Johnathan Hamilton Alumni Fund will provide tuition assistance for select students at the Avon-based private school that offers classes from kindergarten to 8th grade. Hamilton graduated from TMA in 2015. He was 19 and a Simsbury resident when he died in October 2020. The heartbreaking loss for the family and school community inspired an outpouring of in-memoriam contributions. TMA has used those contributions to start the fund as a tribute to Hamilton. “Establishing this fund seems like a fitting way to remember and honor Johnathan’s spirit and kind nature,” says academy dean Lydia Gibb. “While gifts received in Johnathan’s memory serve as the foundation for the fund, we hope others will be inspired to contribute to maximize the fund’s impact on students in need.” Founded in 1983 as a division of the Talcott Mountain Science Center, Talcott Mountain Academy focuses on gifted students via a unique on-site learning laboratory that nurtures their innate abilities. TMA is a nonprofit and donations are tax-deductible. For more information, contact Gibb at 860-677-0035 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org + www.talcottacademy.org
