2016 BRENDAN GRANT SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED TO
COLE BARTELS, REBECCA TANANBAUM AND KAR HOE CHIU


BELMONT - The fifteenth annual Brendan Grant Scholarships were awarded at the Senior Student Assembly at Belmont High School in Belmont, MA on Friday, 3 June 2016. The 2016 recipients are class of 2016 graduating Seniors Cole Bartels, Rebecca Tananbaum, and Kar Hoe Chiu.

2016 ScholarshipsA 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 Cole Bartels representing baseball and attending Penn State, Rebecca Tananbaum representing softball and attending Washington University, and Kar Hoe Chiu representing wrestling and attending UMass Boston.

In the fall of 2016, each of this year’s recipients will be attending their respective post-secondary schools. Sincere congratulations are extended to each of them and their families. This year’s scholarship recipients are the 35th, 36th, and 37th overall since this initiative started.

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.
