BELMONT - The eighth annual Brendan Grant Scholarships were awarded at the Senior Student 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.
2009 Brendan Grant Scholarship Recipients
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 Vladislav Shusharin 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 here for more information about the scholarship and about past recipients.

All contributions to support these annual scholarship awards are greatly appreciated, and can be made payable to and mailed to "The Brendan Grant Foundation", P.O. Box 184, Belmont, MA 02478-4024
