CAMBRIDGE, MA — Matthew DeAmbrose, of Wilmington, received the Charlesgate Yacht Club’s annual scholarship.
The club offers an annual scholarship to a dependent of a first responder for the city of Cambridge, in appreciation for the work they do in providing for the safety and wellbeing of the citizens of Cambridge. DeAmbrose was presented with this award at a meeting of the yacht club on June 5.
Matthew DeAmbrose is the son of Michael DeAmbrose, a member of the Cambridge Fire Department currently stationed at Engine 6-River Street as well as an auxiliary police officer for the city, and Christine DeAmbrose, a teacher for the city of Cambridge. Matthew DeAmbrose comes from a family of civil servants, and his grandfather was an New York City firefighter for over 30 years.
Matthew will be attending Massachusetts Maritime Academy in the fall, majoring in marine engineering, which follows his summers working as a commercial fisherman and interning as a crew member aboard the Spirit of Boston. During his time at Mass Maritime Academy, one of his priorities will be to earn his captain’s license.
Matthew was named to Wilmington High School’s honor roll all four years, all while volunteering as a fundraising coordinator at the high school, participating as team captain of his local Relay for Life, participating on his high school soccer team, and coaching youth soccer for the town of Wilmington.
