2011 BRENDAN GRANT SCHOLARSHIPs AWARDED TO MICHAEL VONA, EMMA BROWN, AND IVAN LOZANO

BELMONT - The tenth annual Brendan Grant Scholarships were awarded at the Senior Student Assembly at Belmont High School in Belmont, MA on Tuesday, 31 May 2011.  The 2011 recipients are class of 2011 graduating Seniors Michael Vona, Emma Brown, and Ivan Lozano.

2011 Scholarship RecipientsA single scholarship was awarded in 2002 and 2003, and in 2004 it was expanded to two annual scholarships. In 2008 the scholarships were expanded from two to three recipients for a college-bound Senior from the Belmont High School Varsity Baseball Team, Varsity Softball Team., and Varsity Wrestling Team.  The team affiliations for each recipient are Michael Vona representing baseball, Emma Brown representing softball, and Ivan Lozano representing wrestling.  In the fall of 2011, Michael will be attending University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, Emma will be attending Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), and Ivan will be attending Southern New Hampshire University.  Sincere congratulations are extended to Michael, Emma, Ivan 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 2001. 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
