State Senator John A. Kissel (R-Enfield) is praising Windsor Locks student Malcolm Little for being the 2010 Connecticut Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship top recipient. Scholarships are awarded to graduating high school seniors who have excelled academically, and are leaders in their communities and schools. While the 38 other Connecticut recipients received $1000 scholarships, Malcom received a $10,000 scholarship which he will be using toward his education at Bentley College. Malcom is a top student at the Metropolitan Learning Center for Global and International Studies in Bloomfield.

Senator Kissel, who participated in the award ceremony, praised Malcolm for his commitment to his community and his academic achievements. “Malcolm is an outstanding young man who is well deserving of this scholarship. He has worked hard throughout his high school career, and still found time to be a positive role model in his community. His hard work and dedication speak a great deal about his character and his family also should be commended for raising such a fine young man.”
