SHS Athletic Scholarship Award

By Adrian Espinal

The Salisbury Athletic Booster Club is offering several $500 scholarships for graduating seniors. In order to apply for this scholarship, you must have played at least one sport in both your junior and senior year and you must be attending either a two-year or four-year institution of higher learning next year.

The scholarship applicant must write an essay answering the following prompt: “As an athlete at Salisbury High School, you have come into contact with numerous coaches, athletes from other schools, coaches from other schools, and many others who non-athletes may have never had an opportunity to meet. Please write about one person you met and worked with or just developed a friendship with in your sport or sports who has made the greatest impact on your life, now and perhaps in the future. You may use their names but you are also allowed to leave names out if you so choose.”

This essay is a blind essay, so you cannot put your name on your paper. Once submitted, a number will be assigned to your essay so the judges will not know your identity. The essay must be submitted to Mrs. Zapf in the Guidance Office by Friday, April 29. Good luck to all those who apply!
