2015 Scholarship Winners: Ryan D'Alessandro, Miranda Byrne, Matthew Frazier, Sean Nyhuis

The Thomas H. Bowden, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund awarded scholarships to Ryan D'Alessandro,
Miranda Byrne, Matthew Frazier and Sean Nyhuis, graduating seniors from Glen Ridge High School, at an assembly Friday, June 5th. The assembly was held at the Glen Ridge Upper Elementary School. Tommy's sister - Kathryn Bowden - and Tommy's friend - James Cowan - presented the awards.

Kathryn shared, "Once again, we had to choose from a very large group of applicants. Every applicant shared a story of how their life touched another's in their essay - and every applicant's story touched a place in our hearts. We are so very honored to have the opportunity to keep Tommy's legacy of quietly touching the lives of others alive with our award to our four winners!"
Congratulations to the the Class of 2015!

The 2015 Scholarship Winners have been Decided!

After much deliberation, the 2015 Thomas H. Bowden, Jr. Memorial Scholarship recipients have been determined. 

This has not been an easy process! We were extremely impressed with the quality of every applicant's essay - as well as the pictures they painted of life as a young adult in Glen Ridge. We know that each and every person was deserving.

The Scholarships will be awarded on Friday, June 5th at the awards ceremony in the auditorium at the Ridgewood Avenue Upper Elementary School (known to some of us as the old Middle School) - and after the awards are presented their names will be posted here.
