Green Mountain announces scholarships, awards

© 2020 Telegraph Publishing LLC

On Friday, June 12, the Green Mountain High School held its annual Awards Night, giving out awards and scholarships to its graduating seniors as more than 200 people attended the virtual ceremony. It also marks the 35th anniversary of the Hart Scholarship, commemorating Jay Hart, a graduate of the Green Mountain Class of 1972.

Hart was a well-loved and respected athlete and school leader who contracted Hodgkin’s disease and died in February 1985. That same year, his family began the Hart Scholarship, which is given to a student(s) to further their education.  1985 was also the year that Jay’s brother Greg graduated, and he presented the scholarship on behalf of the family.

Jay’s sister, Beverly, says,”When going over the applications, we keep our brother in mind and try to pick someone that we think he would want to have it.”

This year, the recipients are twins Rileigh and Jacob Thomas of Chester.
