Bryan’s Dream Foundation will be awarding two Bryan T. Opremcak Memorial Scholarships to Ridge High School graduating seniors this year.
Funded by a donation from Nancy and Tim Opremcak, this scholarship is in memory of their son Bryan, who passed away in 2006 from a brain tumor.
According to Tim Opremcak, “Bryan would have been a member of the Class of 2011 at Ridge High School, so we chose this year to offer a scholarship in his memory. It’s designed to honor Bryan’s determination and spirit as he fought this deadly disease.”
Scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each will be awarded to one boy and one girl. Qualifications will include an emphasis on strong grades and community service.

Completed applications should be returned to the Bryan T. Opremcak Memorial Scholarship, Bryan's Dream Foundation, P.O. Box 20, Basking Ridge, NJ 07920. Applications must be postmarked by April 1, 2011.
