In pictures: Education Grants awards ceremonies 2019
Each spring, Blandin Foundation trustees and staff have the honor to attend the awards ceremonies and graduations at our area high schools, to recognize students receiving Blandin Foundation Education Grants.
These awards began 63 years ago, when a local businessman, Charles Blandin, gave 2 students – both women – scholarships to continue their education. He understood then, as we do today, that education is one key to students’ strong futures.
This year, we salute the 325 students who received these scholarships, including 129 high school seniors and first-time recipients.
Mr. Blandin — and all of us here at the Foundation — would want you to know that he believes in you, that your success matters, to you, your family and your community. Your future is wide open!
