Comcast awards scholarships to local grads
REGION - The Comcast Foundation, founded in
1999 to provide charitable support to its local commu-
nities and to empower and enrich lives, announced
that it has awarded 13 Western Massachusetts students
$22,000 in scholarships through its annual Leaders and
Achievers Scholarship Program.
The program, one of the Comcast Foundation's sig-
nature community investment programs, recognizes
students' leadership skills, academic achievement and
commitment to community service.
A special ceremony was recently held at the
Massachusetts State House, where Comcast officials
were joined by Massachusetts Treasurer Steven
Grossman to honor 98 graduating high school seniors
from across the Commonwealth who are receiving
$1,000 scholarships from the Comcast Foundation.
In addition, one lucky Western Massachusetts stu-
dent, Jonathon Yee of Holyoke, was awarded a $10,000
Comcast Founders Scholarship – instituted in honor of
Ralph J. Roberts, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of
Comcast Corporation – for a total of $107,000 award- TURLEY PUBLICATIONS SUBMITTED PHOTO

“Each year, we are excited to award Leaders and Jonathon Yee, a graduate of Holyoke High School and resident of Holyoke, were awarded scholarships.
Achievers scholarships to talented and deserving stu-
dents in Western Massachusetts who demonstrate lead-
ership in school activities and reflect a strong commit-
ment to community service,” said Mary McLaughlin,
senior vice president of Comcast’s Western New
England region, which includes Western Massachusetts.
“We are proud to recognize the success and potential of
such outstanding student leaders, all of whom are
preparing for the next step in their educational careers.”
The Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship
Program provides one-time $1,000 scholarships to stu-
dents who strive to achieve their potential, who are
catalysts for positive change in their communities, who
are involved in their schools, and who serve as models
for their fellow students.
The philosophy behind the program is to give young
people every opportunity to be prepared for the future, to
engage youth in their communities, and to demonstrate
the importance of civic involvement, and the value
placed on civic involvement by the business community.
Local winners throughout Massachusetts have partic-
ipated in a wide variety of community service activities,
such as volunteering at Boys & Girls Clubs along with
local food banks and hospitals. Since the program’s
inception there have been over 19,000 scholarship win-
ners totaling more than $19 million nationwide.

Local runners shine at Bridge of Flowers
BY NATE ROSENTHAL
Turley Publications Sports Correspondent
SHELBURNE FALLS – The second
week in August has come and Shelburne
Falls once again welcomed with open
arms runners from around the world.
More than 800 athletes converged upon
this tiny community to participate in
their annual road race — The Bridge of
Flowers Classic, now in its 35th year.
The event is actually two races. The
first is the 3K Steve Lewis Subaru
Charity 3K Walk and Run, which fea-
tures runners young and old. It has also
been known as the Nathan Hale race.
The runners set off at 8:15 a.m. The
main event, the 10K Classic, followed.
This race has drawn people from all over
the world and as recently as 2008, it was
run as a part of the USA Track & Field
New England Grand Prix series.
Once again, Mike McCusker, the
founder and director of the race was

All six teams qualified for the league playoffs this
year, but only the Renaissance Phoenix and the

The top-seeded Rams and the second-seeded
Phoenix, who split a pair of games during the regular
season, faced each other for the third time this summer
in the championship game.
The Phoenix was able to build a double digit lead in
the middle of the first half and they withstood a Rams
