Breezy Point Students Earn Bayhouse Scholarships


This past summer saw the introduction of the Bayhouse Scholarships. Proprietor Sean Sheridan proposed five scholarships, worth one thousand dollars each, for students entering Catholic high school in the Brooklyn Diocese. Requirements included residence in Breezy Point, attendance at a Catholic High School, and a written essay. Judging was done by a panel of Breezy Point residents following guidelines obtained from high school principals in the area. Eighty-five students applied for the grants. Winning criteria included being a ‘whole person’ deeply committed to their faith, home, community, and academic success. The winners are Andrew Appel at Bishop Ford, Stephen Henderson at Xaverian High School, and Bishop Kearney students Meaghan King, Mary Eileen Kiernan, and Caitlin Farrell.
