BWMPO John Hudson Scholarship Fundraiser is Saturday, February 12
The annual Boston Weston METCO Parent Organization (BWMPO) John Hudson scholarship fundraiser is this Saturday, February 12 at 2 pm. This year’s event will be a virtual presentation titled Reflections of METCO Parents: Senior Parent Perspectives. Parents of current METCO seniors will be sharing their experiences and perspectives in their own words.
The Scholarship is named for John Hudson who served as the Chair of the Boston Weston METCO Parent Organization for many years and was instrumental in making it possible for METCO parents to serve as part of the Weston School Committee. John was the father of three children who graduated through the METCO program in Weston. He died in 2014.
The Boston-Weston METCO (Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunities) program brings approximately 167 students, grades K-12, from Boston to Weston’s public schools. The Weston High School class of 2022 includes twelve METCO students.
Scholarship funds are awarded to applicants in varying amounts according to merit, community service, and METCO involvement. No financial information is required from parents or students.
Keitrice Johnson, Chair of the Boston Weston METCO Parents Organization commented “We award scholarships to each applicant so we welcome and appreciate every donation. It is our hope that the entire community will make time to attend the virtual event and continue the conversation in our personal networks.”
