Two recent graduates of the Oxbridge Academy received scholarships from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. Virginia Arguelles of Wellington and Brandon Kramer of West Palm Beach were both awarded $10,000 Edward T. Bedford Scholarships through the Community Foundation’s annual scholarship program. Arguelles will attend Northwestern University in the fall, while Kramer is going to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The foundation is one of the largest providers of scholarships in the two-county region. It has nearly 100 scholarship funds that have been established by donors who are committed to education, such as the Edward T. Bedford Foundation.
The foundation was established in 1994 by Palm Beach resident E.T. Bedford Davie, and is named in honor of his maternal grandfather, Edward T. Bedford. The foundation annually awards students who have a record of academic excellence in athletics, artistry, literary, music and other pursuits.
Arguelles was also the recipient of the James W. McLamore Whopper Scholarship for $1,000. Other Oxbridge students who received the scholarship from the Burger King McLamore Foundation include Kendall Jackson and Carlos Pernas.
