Statewide, 2,000 students received scholarships for $1,500, while another 6,000 earned $500 each toward their college tuition.

According to GRB Principal Donna Parkhurst, this year’s senior class excelled on their Regents exams, and two students -- Caleb Almeter and David Tallents -- earned the top award of $1,500. Students Donna Aiken, Gina Babcock, Michael Bolster, Keegan Condon, Olivia Coakley, Kayla Dingman, Althea Henderson and Emilee Hyde were awarded $500 scholarships.
