Eugene Pergament Scholarship Propels Local Youth Toward Promising Futures
In 2017, New Haven native Bryanna Moore (pictured) received life-changing news. She learned she was to become one of a handful of students from the graduating class of Hillhouse High School to receive a Eugene Pergament Scholarship. Today, Moore is a junior at Yale College studying political science with a concentration in American politics. The Eugene Pergament Scholarship was created by and named for a 1951 Hillhouse High School graduate who credits his ninth grade biology teacher with inspiring his interest in science — an interest that gave rise to a successful career in reproductive genetics. Between 2010 and 2019, more than 70 Hillhouse students received a Pergament scholarship thanks to Dr. Pergament’s gift of $1 million. Dr. Pergament decided to create the scholarship to acknowledge his gratitude for the teachers who fostered in him an inclination to learn, to study and to be the best that he could be.
