Thanks to the generous support and participation of our concerned community, we are celebrating our 28th Anniversary honoring Bayport – Blue Point’s top high school seniors with FIVE Vinny Perri Memorial Scholarship awards in the amount of $2,500 each.
In 2013, we added a third award in honor of Jeannine David, who lost her battle with cancer in 2012 and was our first Vinny Perri Memorial Scholarship winner in 1990.
In 2016, we awarded a fourth scholarship in honor of our fallen friend, brother and hero, Firefighter Greg Chevalley, who passed away in 2015 due to complications from cancer caused by ingesting the air at the World Trade Center following 9/11.
In 2017 we added a fifth scholarship honoring one of Bayport’s finest, Ed Herting, who passed away earlier that year. Ed was an outspoken supporter of all things Bayport-Blue Point, residing here for over 45 years, serving in the FDNY as well Chief of the Bayport Fire Department.
