This scholarship was established in 2012 and is named in honor of Arthur Berg who retired from Brighton Marine after 37 years of dedication and commitment to the organization. From 2012 to 2017, the scholarship was awarded to a student in the Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program at Brighton High School who demonstrated outstanding leadership, community service and commitment to their education.
With the closing of the Brighton High School JROTC program in the 2017-2018 academic year, Brighton Marine realigned its scholarship to East Boston High School JROTC. The scholarship assists awardees in achieving further success as they continued their education after high school graduation.
Arthur Berg started with Brighton Marine Health Center, Inc. in 1975 after serving in the Navy. The military gave Arthur the discipline and character to work within the organization’s facilities department and eventually advance to direct the entire department over many successful years. His efforts and contributions helped to keep Brighton Marine, a non-profit organization, thriving.
The ideal candidate for this scholarship is expected to demonstrate the same notable characteristics as Arthur. Successful recipients demonstrate exceptional performance in JROTC, academics, community service and leadership.
