The scholarship banquet was Thursday May 16th this year. One major function of the BAJ’s has been the annual awarding of Jerry Molosky scholarships. The pancake breakfast fund raiser is held each October to raise money for Bloomington Jefferson and Kennedy high school seniors that participate in athletics. A committee selects the top qualified seniors from the many applicants submitted. A $1500 scholarship award, along with a plaque, is given to each winner from the funds made at the pancake breakfast. We typically award around 10 to 12 scholarships annually. Students and their parents are invited to attend a sit-down banquet in their honor at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Bloomington.
In the last 30 years, we have given well over $230,000 to the students to help defray the cost of higher education. A letter of acceptance by the school of their choice must be sent to our chairman before the money is awarded.
Members of the present scholarship committee are:
Chairman Bob Swanson, Jerry Narragon, Roger Koland, John Crary, Gerry VandeGarde and the 2 high school activity directors: Chad Nyberg and Jon Anderson.
