Medeiros Scholars Honored Tonight

Ten more Boston area high school students win full scholarships


Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley, archbishop of Boston, will preside at tonight's Medeiros Scholarship ceremony with President Robert A. Brown.

BU will award a Cardinal Medeiros Scholarship to 10 outstanding students from Boston-area Catholic archdiocesan high schools tonight in a ceremony at the George Sherman Union.

This four-year, full-tuition award is part of the University’s Cardinal Humberto Medeiros Scholarship Program. Established in 1986 by President Emeritus John Silber (Hon.’95), the scholarship is given to students with outstanding academic achievements, leadership skills, and contributions to their schools and communities. By the time these students graduate, the University will have enrolled 337 Medeiros scholars, representing $32 million in tuition.

The 2009 recipients of the Medeiros Scholarship are:

Edward W. Adams III, Boston College High School
Daniel H. Bradley, Central Catholic High School
Rebecca L. Gabriel, Presentation of Mary Academy
Rebecca A. Gulla-Devaney, Our Lady of Nazareth Academy
Michaela A. Immar, Cardinal Spellman Central High School
Derek C. Liberti, Arlington Catholic High School
Kristen M. Maney, Pope John XXIII High School
Mark A. Medeiros, Malden Catholic High School
Arianna Medina, Bishop Fenwick High School
Sarah E. Shaughnessy, Notre Dame Academy

Students were selected by representatives from the Office of the President, BU Admissions, and the Archdiocese of Boston. President Robert A. Brown and Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley, archbishop of Boston, will preside over tonight’s ceremony.
