2020 BAJ Scholarship Award Winners
One major function of the BAJ’s has been the annual awarding of Jerry Molosky scholarships. The pancake breakfast fundraiser 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, was given to each winner from the funds made at the pancake breakfast. We typically awarded around 10 to 12 scholarships annually. Students and their parents were invited to attend a sit-down banquet in their honor at the Bloomington Event Center.
In the last 31 years, we have given over $250,000 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 committee before the money is awarded.
Starting in 2023, our pancake breakfast/silent auction proceeds will be awarded to 4 scholarship winners - 2 each from Bloomington Jefferson and Kennedy high schools. These will be presented at a high school ceremony.
