Waltham students awarded Stroum Family Waltham Endowed Scholarship

Four exceptional Waltham High School students have been named recipients of Stroum Family Waltham Endowed Scholarships to attend Brandeis University starting in the fall of 2017. The scholarships provide full tuition for four years. 

The newly-named Stroum Waltham Scholars were recognized in a ceremony April 27 at Brandeis, attended by Waltham Mayor Jeannette Walsh, Waltham Police Chief Keith MacPherson, Waltham High School Principal Greg DeMeo, members of the Waltham city council and school committee, and the families of the Stroum Waltham Scholars.

Samuel J. Stroum, a Waltham High School graduate and Seattle businessman and philanthropist, and his wife, Althea, created scholarship in 1996 to provide tuition for the top Waltham High School seniors who are accepted to Brandeis. 

Although Stroum moved away from Waltham before Brandeis was established in 1948, he felt his scholarship gifts were a way of giving back to the community in which he was raised.
