Three area student-athletes entering their senior year in high school, Sean Flanagan of Framingham (Bishop Feehan High), Kathleen Krah (Medfield High), and Alexander Lagos (Millis High) have received Future Leader Scholarships, worth $2,000, from organizers of the Bay State Games. They were recognized for outstanding credentials in academics, athletics, community service and leadership.
A cross-country, track, and baseball athlete, Flanagan, who is hearing impaired, is founder and president of the American Sign Language Club at Bishop Feehan, and was an assistant instructor at the Beverly School for the Deaf baseball clinic.
Krah, who helped propel the Medfield volleyball team to back-to-back Division 2 state titles and is a captain-elect, is involved in many activities, including playing cello in the school orchestra.
Lagos was a Tri-Valley League All-Star in baseball and is a member of the Student Athletes For Excellence in Education, in which he reads to elementary school children. He has also participated in mission trips with his church to perform construction work and community outreach.
He will travel this month to Rosarito, Mexico, to visit orphanages and help with construction.
