First Frederick W. “Rick” Griffin Scholarship to Eric Yemma


Eric Yemma

Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, Maine (July 2015)— Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty awarded the first Frederick W. “Rick” Griffin Memorial Scholarship to Eric Yemma. Eric graduated from Kennebunk High School in June. The memorial scholarship fund totaling $25,000 will provide a $2,500 scholarship to a college-bound Kennebunk High School graduating senior each year for the next 10 years.

“Rick Griffin was a great friend, a warm and generous colleague, and a true leader in the Kennebunk community,” said Christopher Lynch, President of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. This is the first year the scholarship has been awarded. “The Rick Griffin Scholarship Fund is committed to identifying students who champion all that is special about the Kennebunks, and this year we have a terrific individual.”

Eric Yemma was selected based on academic ability, achievements, leadership and commitment to the community. The scholarship was intended for individuals who are recognized by teachers, school administration and peers as one who personifies and embodies all that is “special” about living in the Kennebunks. They are students that exhibit their passion through academic, athletic, and community involvement while demonstrating a commitment to making the Kennebunks a better place to live and work.  Eric will be attending Merrimack College in North Andover Massachusetts.

“We are proud to offer this scholarship in Rick’s honor and look forward to sharing his story with the Kennebunk High School seniors over the next decade,” said Lynch. “I am hopeful that Eric and future recipients will return after college to continue to have the same positive impact on the community that earned them the scholarship.”

“I never had the privilege of meeting Rick Griffin, but I understand that he was an amazing individual who had a positive impact on the Kennebunk community” says Eric. “I will hold myself to high standards and work hard to be an upstanding individual just as Rick Griffin was.”
