On May 24, three students from Jeremiah E. Burke High School in Dorchester, MA were each awarded $1,000 college scholarships for their leadership during a national attendance challenge.

Seniors at Dorchester’s Jeremiah Burke High School were rewarded for all the hard work they put forth this year.
