Parthum Remembered With Scholarships

Fourteen students were recognized on June 9 at the AC Hotel in the South End as part of the Blackstone/Franklin Neighborhood Association scholarship, the first year the effort wasn’t spearheaded by Andrew Parthum – the late founder of the scholarship who passed away earlier this year from cancer. It is the 15th year for the scholarship awards, and as a tribute several of Parthum’s friends were in attendance. Pictured here are Andrew’s husband Bill Leonard, his mother Marge Parthum, John Osthaus, Douglas Spencer and Andrew Fullem.
