Town of Burlington Fuel Assistance Information For Families


Brianna T. Gainley and Ryan C. Hart Teamwork Scholarship Fund

On March 18, 2016, BHS Alum, Brianna Gainley, became the first graduate of UMass Lowell's Class of 2016.  Five weeks later, on April 23, 2016, Brianna passed away after a valiant five year battle against osteosarcoma.
Following her untimely death, the "Brianna T. Gainley and Ryan C. Hart Teamwork Scholarship Fund" was established by the Gainley family and UMass Lowell in memory of Brianna.  UMass Lowell will use proceeds from the fund to provide an annual scholarship to sophomore, junior, and senior students pursuing a degree in computer science at the University.  
Brianna's family and friends have formed "Team Brianna" to run the Bay State half marathon in Lowell on October 16, 2016. Members of "Team Brianna" will be running in memory and honor of Brianna — UML's first Class of ’16 graduate — and the teamwork between Brianna and her partner, Ryan.  The purposes of "Team Brianna" are to:
- Continue remembering Brianna and how she enriched people's lives, and to never forget the strength, perseverance, determination and courage that she displayed under adverse circumstances
- Support the women in technology initiative
- Support UMass Lowell's mission, and to help provide financial assistance to future generations of UML students who share Brianna's dedication to pursuing their education and completing their CS degree
If you would like to learn more about the people and reasons behind the "Brianna T. Gainley and Ryan C. Hart Teamwork Scholarship Fund", Ed Brennan from UMass Lowell wrote a very nice article about Brianna which can be found at this link:
