RED SOX SERVICE SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS TO BE INTRODUCED AT FENWAY PARK TODAY
BOSTON, MA – The Red Sox Foundation will introduce recipients of the Red Sox Service Scholarships during a pregame ceremony at Fenway Park before the Red Sox-Rays game today, Tuesday, July 30. The program awards high school students in each of the New England states outside of Massachusetts with $1,000 scholarships towards their college education based on demonstrated community service, academic performance, and financial aid eligibility.
A total of 210 public high school graduates from Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Connecticut have been awarded scholarships this year, and nearly all of the recipients will be on hand before tonight’s game to be recognized on the field. A full list of the award recipients is attached.
Before their recognition on the field at Fenway Park, the awardees will participate in a community service project in collaboration with Mayor Walsh’s office and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department. The group will conduct a #Trashtag Challenge to pick up trash in five different public parks and spaces throughout Boston, including the Boston Common, downtown Boston, Ronan Park in Brighton, the Victory Garden and Roberto Clemente Baseball Field in the Back Bay Fens, and Fidelis Way Park in Allston.
The New England Service Scholarship Program is supported by the Ford Motor Company, the Ford Motor Company Fund, which helped support 30 additional scholarships this year, and National Grid in the state of Rhode Island.
