Burns Scholars recognized by Giants
SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants Community Fund recognized both the incoming and graduating classes of the Harmon and Sue Burns Scholars on Saturday during Annual Education Day at AT&T Park.

During a pregame reception, Giants rookie reliever George Kontos spoke about the importance of education, and the Giants Community Fund also presented gifts to Bay Area education non-profit groups. The Giants also recognized the graduating and incoming scholars with a pregame ceremony at home plate before Saturday's game against the Rockies.

Every year, 10 eighth-grade participants of the Junior Giants program are selected as Harmon and Sue Burns Scholars for their leadership skills, character, academics and program involvement. They are each awarded $2,500 scholarships in honor of the late Giants owners.
