Greater Bridgeport Retired Teachers Association award scholarships

Members of the Greater Bridgeport Retired Teachers Association (GBRTA), retired teachers who taught in or reside in any of eight local towns, raised money for scholarships to help graduating public high school seniors further their schooling.

Awards in the amount of $1,000 each were presented to 16 seniors, one from each of the public high schools in Greater Bridgeport (Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Milford, Monroe, Shelton, Stratford and Trumbull), who qualified in the areas of scholarship, citizenship and community service and who expressed intention to pursue careers in education.

Retired teachers attended many of the high school awards ceremonies to present the scholarships.

Winners included from Trumbull — Isabel Berte.
