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.
A 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.
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.
