Derek Talbot

2014  Sanford High School
$2,500 Market Decisions Research Mainely Character Scholarship

After a difficult childhood that included a period living in a shelter, Derek “made the choice to persevere.” Inspired by a teacher, he improved his grades and became involved in community service. He tutored elementary students, helped at summer recreation programs, and  was active in a youth program to clean and revitalize his hometown of Sanford.

Derek decided not to let his situation get the best of him; instead, he decided to make a difference and  became a role model in the school and community. He transformed from a shy kid to an enthusiastic young person who  worked hard to help those in his school, as well as the town.

Derek enrolled in  the University of Maine.
