The 2023 Raymond Hap Harrison Scholarship Ceremony
This past week, Kelly Kim, a senior at New Milford High School received the 26th Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship. The scholarship is named after Adam Leitman Bailey’s Track and Cross Country Coach in High School, who he credits much of his success, in regards to not only running but to what he has accomplished in his career. Ms Kim was chosen out of all New Milford High School students by the Guidance Department to be a paid intern at Adam Leitman Bailey. She has decided to attend The College of New Jersey.
The Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship is funded through the Building Foundations charity, founded by Adam Leitman Bailey in 2002. The charity’s mission is to assist students of all ages in pursuing their professional and personal dreams by providing financing, scholarships, education, internships, real-life experience and any other tools necessary to reach their dreams. It is a $40,000 scholarship divided evenly across 4 years. The Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship has donated over a million dollars since 2008.
