2008 BRENDAN GRANT SCHOLARSHIP AWARDED TO JONATHON SMART, MICAELA HEBERT, AND ALEXANDER CHIPMAN-SHERVISH

BELMONT - The seventh annual Brendan Grant Scholarships were awarded at the Senior Student Assembly at Belmont High School in Belmont, MA on Friday, 6 June 2008.  The 2008 recipients are class of 2008 graduating Seniors Jonathon Smart, Micaela Hebert, and Alexander Chipman-Shervish.

A single scholarship was awarded in 2002 and 2003, and in 2004 it was expanded to two annual scholarships. Once again, this year's scholarships were expanded from two to three recipients.  Previous recipients represented a college-bound Senior from the Belmont High School Varsity Baseball Team and Varsity Softball Team., and this year a third recipient was added representing a graduating Senior from the Belmont High School Varsity Wrestling Team.  The recipients all happen to be Captains of their respective squads, with Jon Smart representing baseball, Micaela Hebert representing softball, and Alex Chipman-Shervish representing wrestling.  In the fall of 2008, Jon will be attending Harvard University, Micaela will be attending Saint Anselm College, and Alex will be attending Boston College.  Sincere congratulations are extended to Jon, Micaela and Alex and their families.

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 three annual scholarships provides assistance to a senior member of the Belmont High School varsity baseball, softball and wrestling teams 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.
