Headmaster Bernadette Coelho said, “We could not be more proud that among the hundreds of scholarships that our graduates of the Class of 2015 have received, New Bedford educators have awarded these deserving NBHS students as they move on from the Whaler community. I know that each of these eight alumni will go on to make all of us at New Bedford High School extremely proud.”
