Chelmsford High School Alumni Association


Michael and Deborah Palaski
Memorial Scholarship

Established 2016


Awarding Criteria: Will be awarded to a deserving Senior who has earned a varsity letter in Ice Hockey

The Palaski scholarship honors two Chelmsford High School alumni, Debbie Palaski, class of 1981 and Michael Palaski, class of 1983. Both were active hockey players at Chelmsford high earning accolades for the team. Debbie, a defensive player, helped the team win nationals and Mike, as captain held the school record for the most points made as a defensive player.

Both Debbie and Mike held hockey and Chelmsford high school close to their hearts as they grew and had families of their own. Friends remember the brother and sister for their humor and joy. This scholarship was established, in the hopes, that hockey will help guide students to an uplifting and positive future. Their family and friends hope that the joy Debbie and Mike felt on the ice can continue well past high school.
