BRADFORD — The long-awaited 2020 Bradford Community Scholarship Fund ceremony was held at the Bradford fire house on June 30.
Normally the event is held in April but due to COVID-19 the ceremony had to be postponed. However, the Scholarship Committee was determined to make sure that the Class of 2020 had a safe version of this recognition event.
All graduating seniors living in the Bradford school district were invited to attend to be reunited one last time, be honored for their high school accomplishments and to be presented with scholarships and awards from the Community Scholarship Fund and several other entities as well as the awards previously presented at Bradford High School graduations.
All the graduates’ names were read and those that filled out applications and information forms had their accomplishments from high school presented.
The scholarship/award recipients were:
• Arianna Gardner-Ferman — Duane Stewart Music Award.
