New scholarship for Lincoln High seniors established to honor late teen

Lincoln High School and the Alliance 4 Education has established an annual college scholarship for graduating seniors in honor of Mahamed Mohamud, a FamilyWorks and Wallingford Boys & Girls Club volunteer who tragically drowned last summer in Green Lake. FamilyWorks released the following statement about the fund:

We are excited to announce a new scholarship for Lincoln High School seniors in celebration of the life of Mahamed Anwar Mohamud, Class of 2024. Mahamed was a person who radiated joy. He was a kind and gentle human being who loved reading and learning for the sake of learning. He was thoughtful, dedicated, compassionate, and authentic; a self-assured and inclusive collaborator and partner to his classmates, and a faith-focused and values-driven friend to those around him. This commemoration scholarship will be awarded annually to a student who has consistently demonstrated the values that Mahamed embodied, as well as a commitment to building and supporting their community through actions that demonstrate love, support, and caring for others.
