2007 BRENDAN GRANT SCHOLARSHIP AWARDED TO KELLY O'BRIEN AND BRYAN WATKINS

2007 Scholarship Winners Bryan Watkins and Kelly O'Brien BELMONT - The sixth annual Brendan Grant Scholarships were awarded at the Senior Student Assembly at Belmont High School in Belmont, MA on Friday, 25 May 2007.  This year's scholarship recipient representing the Belmont High School Varsity Baseball and Softball teams are team Captains Kelly O'Brien and Bryan Watkins.  Sincere congratulations are extended to Kelly and Bryan and their families.

While the 2007 Belmont High School softball team was coming off a mediocre rebuilding season, the BHS baseball team has posted one of its best records in decades.  Independent from their respective team records, each of this year's recipients have played an important role in their team's success and have displayed outstanding leadership skills.  Kelly will be attending American International College (Brendan's alma mater) in Springfield, MA to pursue physical therapy, and Bryan will be attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, MA in the environmental engineering program. 2007 Scholarship Winners Bryan Watkins and Kelly O'Brien

The Brendan Grant Scholarship  has been established in memory of Brendan Grant, the accomplished 19-year old Belmont baseball player who was fatally injured  in an outfield collision during a Senior Babe Ruth game in June 200l. The two annual scholarships provides assistance to a senior member of both the Belmont High School varsity baseball team and the Belmont High School varsity softball team who will be attending an institution of higher learning after graduation. The scholarship is intended to reward a player who possesses the same positive spirit and leadership skills for which Brendan was known.  Click here for more information about the scholarship and about past recipients.
