History of the Mary H. Hausmann Scholarship

While the scholarship helps hard-working seniors offset the costs of education-related expenses, it also honors the legacy of Mary H. Hausman, nurse, EMT, and inspiring community volunteer.

Mary’s life embodied the values that GAA stands for. She served with the Visiting Nurses Association, St. Francis Hospital and the late-night corridors of the Alcohol Drug Recovery Center (ADRC) in Hartford. Her willingness to be there with patients through the dark hours of the night earned her the name Midnight Mary and the heartfelt gratitude of the patients she helped conquer addiction.

Mary was an avid volunteer in her church and community and one of the founding members of East Granby Ambulance Association. Some of the greatest expressions of her character come from the people who knew and interacted with her. “Mary was a great lady,” and “She was the BEST,” are the comments we receive when talking about the scholarship that bears her name.

We are honored to offer this scholarship and to remember her service and dedication.
