Graduating seniors at John C. Birdlebough High School were not the only students to earn academic recognition and scholarships during year-end ceremonies, as 15 junior classmen received major financial awards as well.
“These are pretty prestigious awards,” said JCB Principal Greg Molloy during an assembly June 13. “This is an awful lot of money – some (scholarships) are worth $40,000. You’ve worked hard and deserve these awards.”
