May 25, 2022: Bronxville High School senior Grace Gramins has been named a 2022 U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts. She is one of 161 students to receive one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students. Next year, Grace will be attending the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania to study entrepreneurship and marketing, as well as popular music and jazz.
“Grace is an amazing musician, songwriter and singer,” Principal Ann Meyer said. “What we love most about having Grace at BHS is her infectious smile and unrelenting positivity that brightens up every classroom and activity. We congratulate her on this outstanding accomplishment that is so well-deserved.”
Meyer said Gramins has shared her musical talents with the Bronxville School community through open mic nights and in concerts. In addition, she has been an instrumental presence in the performing arts productions and has provided music and dance instruction to elementary school students.
Established in 1964, the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program recognizes and honors some of the nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. Students are selected for their accomplishments in many areas, including academics, visual, literary and performing arts, as well as accomplishments in career and technical educational fields.
The Presidential Scholars Class of 2022 will be honored for their outstanding achievement this summer with an online recognition program.

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.
The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.
The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children. All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
