Red Sox Scholars Class of 2009
It was time yesterday to announce our new class of Red Sox Scholars. This a group of 25 academically talented fifth-graders from the neighborhoods of Boston who are promised a $10,000 college scholarship if they finish high school and enter college. It is the cornerstone program of our partnership with the Boston Red Sox, and we are designated as the Presenting Sponsor. Additional support comes from the Highland Street Foundation, Microsoft, the Peter and Carolyn Lynch Foundation, and Target.
At the pre-game ceremony, the children were accompanied by "Medical Champions" from BIDMC and are greeted by a member of the Red Sox team and presented to the park audience. I include pictures of some of the students with their Medical Champions.
During the pre-game ceremony, too, the Red Sox unveiled a new graphic on the left-field side of the Green Monster. The sign highlights the long-standing support provided to the Red Sox Scholars program by BIDMC. See the video below.
