The Dedham Exchange is pleased to announce its 2022 scholarship award winners are Francie Mullen and Isaiah Hill. Both students just graduated from the Dedham High School. This fall, Isaiah will be attending Brandeis University, and Francie will be attending the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. They are both excellent students and have contributed to their school and community.
Importantly for the Dedham Exchange scholarship, both students are passionate about art. A nonprofit gift shop since 1914, the Dedham Exchange’s mission is to support artisans and educational and philanthropic organizations in the community.
Today the Dedham Exchange represents about 200 artisans who hand-craft everything from ceramics, glassware, woven textiles, and woodwork, to hand sewn and hand knitted baby items and much more. The Dedham Exchange donates its proceeds back to the community and grants college scholarships to Dedham High School students who have a demonstrated interest in art.
