THE MARGARET HAGGERTY
MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Margaret Haggerty of Concord bequeathed her entire estate to The Scholarship Fund in 1991. In the 1840s, her grandfather, Patrick Haggerty, was one of the first people of Irish ancestry to settle in Concord, and Miss Haggerty was a third generation Concordian. Miss Haggerty attended Concord Public Schools and graduated from Concord High School in 1934. She then began her 42-year career with the New England Telephone Co. in Concord, retiring in 1977 as a switching systems designer after working at several of the telephone company’s offices; in fact, she was a member of the Telephone Pioneers of America. Miss Haggerty was eager to leave a memorial to her family by establishing this Scholarship Fund.
