|SB Youth Awarded Scholarship to BC High
Each year, Boston College High School awards over $1.7 million in scholarship and financial aid to qualified students from all four-class years.
The Ignatian Scholarship, named for St. Ignatius of Loyola, was awarded to students from a diverse and highly competitive applicant pool to the BC High class of 2010. McDonnell was selected based on his outstanding work on the entrance examination, recommendations from teachers and distinguished academic performance at St. Peter’s school. He will join the BC High Class of 2010.
“We have carefully selected the most qualified young men from a highly competitive applicant pool to become part of BC High’s over 140-year tradition of academic excellence, character development and service to others,” said President Kemeza.
“At BC High, they will be challenged in a nurturing and supportive environment and will graduate as leaders marked by competence, conscience and compassion; leaders who will engage our Church and our world.”
