On Tuesday, May 7, the Creston Kiwanis Club presented Creston High School senior Garrett Abell with the Mickey Finn Education Scholarship. 

Abell will attend college this fall at Southwestern Community College with a major in nursing.  He is the son of Scott and Mendy Abell of Cromwell.

The late-Mickey Finn was a long-time Kiwanis member and well-known Creston business owner.  Finn’s family, including his wife, Karon, established this annual scholarship through the Southwestern Community College Education Foundation to honor his memory.
