July 10, 2018 - SEED recently awarded Jessica Daigle the 2018 Harvey Knepp Scholarship. Valued at $750, this annual scholarship is given to a graduating senior who is considered the unsung hero for dedication to the DHS school community and culture. Daigle will be attending Emmanuel College in Boston, Massachusetts to pursue a career in the medical field.
The scholarship was created in 2012 to honor Harvey Knepp, Dover High School’s longest tenured principal. Following his time in World War II, Knepp was hired at DHS in 1950 to teach physics. In 1956 he became assistant principal and in 1962 he was promoted to principal, a position he held for 13 years. Although he retired in 1982, he continued to serve on the School Board until 1984.
The scholarship is funded by donations received throughout the year. If you would like to support the Harvey Knepp Scholarship Fund, please send donations to: The Harvey Knepp Scholarship Fund C/O: SEED, 61 Locust Street, Suite Mailbox 236, Dover, NH 03820.
