Many of you have may have joined us in the past at our annual event at the Shortstop Restaurant in Westfield. Due to COVID-19, we are going virtual this year! The Karen May Hart Scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior from Gateway Regional High School who has chosen to continue their education by going to college or technical school. The scholarship was set up by the Southern Hilltown Domestic Violence Task Force in 2012.
On May 31, 2002 Karen was murdered in her Blandford home by her estranged husband. Karen was a 1981 graduate of Gateway and left two young children, both graduates of Gateway as well. She would be honored to know that she could continue to contribute to her community that she so deeply loved.
