Ellen T. Mitchell Scholarship


For this, they proposed a scholarship in her name. This scholarship requires that the Falmouth beach employee furthers their education in either a college or trade school, and compose a written essay describing how working for the beaches has positively impacted their life. 

For over 20 years, the Falmouth Walk has donated to support this scholarship. Over the years, approximately $40,000 has been awarded to Falmouth beach employees. The Mitchell Family is deeply grateful to the Falmouth Walk and our friends for their generosity.

Being a mother of 6, Ellen T. Mitchell knew the importance of higher education and was proud to say that all of her children attended college. She was also well aware of the financial burden that can come along with college.


Therefore, on the morning that the Falmouth Bath House on Surf Drive was renamed in her memory, the Mitchell family decided to continue honoring her 25 years of dedicated service on the Falmouth Beach Committee and her love of the beaches. 


For more information regarding the scholarship, please email Margaret Mitchell at

Thank you from Ellen T. Mitchell's sons & daughters: Mark, Margie, Matthew, Michael, Maureen, and Monica!
