The Katrina Joanne Przyemski Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by Katrina's family to honor her life and accomplishments. After graduating from Concord-Carlisle High School (CCHS) in 2000, Katrina studied Environmental Studies at Vassar College before earning a DPhil (PhD) in Philosophy from Oxford. At the time of her passing, Katrina was completing a second PhD at New York University. In addition to her academic achievements, Katrina had a passion for exploring the world and challenging herself physically through marathons, Tough Mudders, and other competitions. Katrina was keenly aware of the importance an education could make to someone's life, and the limited opportunity many people faced.

Katrina was exceptional - she was full of life, enthusiastic, determined, and well-respected by her family, friends, and her peers. She was accepting of everyone. Her humility, caring, sensitive and gentle nature and her love of knowledge were truly admirable. Katrina’s family hope that future scholarship recipients will be inspired by Katrina's legacy.
