2017 BRENDAN GRANT SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED TO
CAL CHRISTOFORI, HERMELA AMANUEL, AND CHRIS MCMULLIN

BELMONT - The sixteenth annual Brendan Grant Scholarships were awarded at the Senior Student Assembly at Belmont High School in Belmont, MA on Friday, 2 June 2017. This year’s recipients are class of 2017 graduating Seniors Cal Christofori, Hermela Amanuel, and Chris McMullin.  Congratulations!

2017 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 Cal Christofori representing baseball, Hermela Amanuel representing softball, and Chris McMullin representing wrestling.

In the fall of 2017, 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 38th, 39th, and 40th 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.
