Former Mayor Tom Menino died last week, but he didn’t go without leaving a strong legacy in Boston and more specifically here at Boston University. The Menino Scholarship is a merit scholarship given to 25 Boston public high school seniors each year, granting them four years of free tuition to Boston University.
WTBU reporter Megan Turchi spoke with Mike Dennehy who directs the Boston University Boston Public Schools Collaborative Office, is the advisor to the Menino Scholarship, and was a Menino Scholar himself on what Menino’s legacy will be at BU.
