New Bedford graduates receive $500 awards from firefighters in honor of Kristian Rose


“Each year, Local 841 member Bryce Fortes awards two graduating high school students a scholarship in honor of his cousin Kristian Rose, who tragically passed away in an auto accident in 2011.

This year, the Local matched Bryce’s contribution, allowing for a $500 award to each student.

Pictured are this year’s recipients, Alexia Thompson from New Bedford High School and Dania Alvarado Argueta from Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School.

Congratulations and best wishes!”-IAFF Local 841 New Bedford Firefighters.
