DURHAM, N.H. -- Alyssa Leuchte of Hampstead was recently recognized by the University of New Hampshire Alumni Association for her academic achievements.

Leuchte, a senior majoring in nutritional science, received a $1,000 scholarship from the Seacoast Chapter of the UNH Alumni Association. The scholarship is awarded annually to a UNH undergraduate who lives in the Seacoast area, has a parent who graduated from the university, and demonstrates both academic merit and financial need.

In January the Seacoast Chapter held a benefit dinner to raise money for the scholarship. This year the Inn at SpruceWood, a senior living community in Durham, sponsored the event, now in its 24th year.
