The Maine Senate today honored the life of 16-year-old Riley Henry Boulay of Liberty. Boulay died recently as the result of injuries suffered in a car accident.

A junior at Mount View High School, Boulay was a student in the electrical trades program at Waldo County Technical Center. He won first place in the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Student Electrical Competition at the organization’s Craft Championship this year, and recently had started working at O'Reilly Auto Parts in Belfast.

Senate President Michael Thibodeau, R-Waldo, left the rostrum to speak about the legacy of the young man who will be sadly missed by his parents, Luke and Jackie; his family; and all those whose lives he touched. Family members and friends were in attendance.

The “Riley Boulay Memorial Scholarship Memorial Fund” has been established to support local students who attend vocational schools and will be awarded to deserving students who exhibit good character and serve their communities.

Donations may be made to the Riley H. Boulay Memorial Scholarship Fund, c/o of Bangor Savings Bank, 7 Belmont Ave., Belfast, ME 04915.
