Tamia Hackworth graduated of Frederick Douglass Academy 1 in 2017. She will be studying at the University at Albany, pursuing a major in economics and minor in Spanish.
As part of the Building Foundations organization, Adam Leitman Bailey founded the Raymond “Hap” Harrison scholarship a decade ago, in honor of his high school cross country and track coach, who inspired him greatly. Since then, the scholarship has been awarded each year to recent high school graduates planning to attend college in the fall.
This year’s recipients who graduated from high school this past year include Tamia Hackworth, Edwin George, Daliza Galarza, Andrea Delacruz, and New Milford’s Tara Moat.
