2009 BRENDAN GRANT SCHOLARSHIP AWARDED TO STEVE AMREIN,
KAYLA HOYER, AND VLADISLAV SHUSHARIN
BELMONT - The eighth annual Brendan Grant Scholarships were awarded at the
Assembly at Belmont High School in Belmont, MA on Monday, 1 June 2009.
The 2009 recipients are class of 2009 graduating Seniors Steve Amrein,
Kayla Hoyer, and Vladislav (Larry) Shusharin.
A single scholarship was awarded in 2002 and 2003, and in 2004 it was
expanded to two annual scholarships. Last year the 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 was expanded to
include a graduating Senior from the Belmont High School Varsity
Wrestling Team. The team affiliations for each recipient are Steve
Amrein representing baseball, Kayla Hoyer representing softball, and
representing wrestling. In the fall of 2009, Steve will be attending
Villinova University, Kayla will be attending Rockhurst University, and
Vladislav will be attending Boston University. Sincere
congratulations are extended to Steve, Kayla and Vladislav 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 provide 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
