PITTSFIELD — Miss Hall's School recent graduates Callie Atwell, of Becket, and AnaMei Boyd, of Lenox, were named the recipients of this year's Mansfield Pickett Scholarships by the Lenox School Alumni Association.
The awards are named in memory of Mansfield E. "Pete" Pickett, who was a longtime teacher both at the former Lenox School and at Miss Hall's School. The scholarships are given to two seniors who exhibit outstanding performance in academics and extracurricular activities. This is the 10th year the association has honored Miss Hall's students.
Atwell, the daughter of James and Sharon Atwell, is a four-year Miss Hall's senior, a Big Sister, proctor and four-year member of the varsity softball team, which she captained for two years. Atwell was also named this season to the New England Prep School Softball Association All-Star team. For two years, she participated in the creation of the documentary, "A Seat at the Table," which chronicles six MHS students as they seek answers to questions about women's leadership. Atwell will attend Endicott College this fall.
Boyd, the daughter of William and Dyane Moore Boyd, is a three-year Miss Hall's senior, a Big Sister and a three-year member of the varsity tennis team, which she captained this year. Additionally, Boyd is a member of the MHS Dance Club, the Hall's Environmental Action Team, and Runway, a club for students interested in fashion. She is also an avid dancer with Pioneer Valley Ballet in Easthampton. She will attend Scripps College this fall.
