On Sunday, June 21, St. James Church of Watertown, MA, held its annual Scholarship Sunday event, presenting 24 scholarships totaling over $22,000 to St. James college students.
Following the Divine Liturgy, the Rev. Fr. Arakel Aljalian presented the scholarships to the recipients, and congratulated them on their achievements. “Work hard this year, and don’t forget that St. James is always your home,” he said to the college students. “We support you and wish you success in your studies.”
This year’s scholarship recipients are: Anais Astarjian, Alina Bazarian, Alyssa Bogosian, John Bogosian-Trocchi, Lucine Boloyan, Alex Bresnee, Arlin Cimen, Kevin Eskici, Natalie Eskici, Aram Gurekian, Emma Kaloostian, Ari Kazanjian, Shane Madden, Tania Melkonian, William Musserian, Alec Seferian, Ari Shirinian, Simon Tacvorian, and Lori Yeterian.
The scholarships are made possible thanks to various endowment funds at St. James Church. We extend our sincere gratitude, once again, to all those parishioners who have established scholarship funds to support and encourage the youth of our church in their academic studies and endeavors.
