Created in 2009, the BSA aims to improve academic achievement through athletics in Boston public high schools.

But some seemed just as excited to take selfies with former mayor Tom Menino, who joined Boston Scholar Athletes founder John Fish of Suffolk Construction, executive director Bekah Splaine Salwasser, Mayor Marty Walsh, BSA supporters Steve and Roberta Weiner, Brigham and Women’s Hospital president Betsy Nabel, Partners Healthcare CEO Gary Gottlieb, and Natixis chief John Hailer.
