A student from Brighton was one of 10 seventh-graders from Boston Public Schools inducted as a Class of 2013 Red Sox Scholar at a recent game at Fenway Park.

Myeta Petruccelli joined a total of 230 other students in the scholars program, ranging from seventh-graders to rising seniors in college, the Red Sox Foundation announced.

Through the program, which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, the foundation provides $10,000 in college scholarships for each new scholar, along with mentoring from foundation staff members, tutoring, and after-school and summer enrichment activities. The program selects middle school students from Boston Public Schools who are “academically talented, financially challenged.”

The foundation, Red Sox players and executives and workers from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center welcomed Petruccelli and other new class of scholars at the game June 9 at Fenway Park, which the Sox won 10 to 5 over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

The program is supported by the medical center, the Highland Street Foundation, the Sunshine Lady Foundation, Target, the Peter Lynch Foundation, and the Klarman Family Foundation.
