ROGER J. PARADY JR. SCHOLARSHIP: A scholarship has been established in memory of Roger J. Parady, for a graduating senior of Gloucester High School who has been accepted by Salem State College, and is pursuing a career in the field of education. Parady was very proud to have graduated from Salem State College which educated and prepared him to go on and become a successful and dedicated teacher of history for more than 33 years. His passion for teaching was evident by the number of students, who, when reflecting upon past teachers, regarded Parady as their “best teacher ever,” a teacher who respected each one as an individual, instilling his confidence that each one had the potential to become successful with hard work and staying in school. Parady often spoke of his appreciation to the city of Gloucester for giving him the opportunity to teach in this community that he loved. Those wishing to donate to his memory may do so by sending their donation to: Roger J. Parady Jr. Scholarship Fund, c/o Cape Ann Savings Bank, 109 Main St., Gloucester, MA 01930.
