Beginning today, local teens can apply for P3R‘s new Board of Directors’ Scholarship, which was created to recognize and support graduating high school seniors who inspire others to move. The scholarship will be awarded to students who demonstrate exceptional leadership and service, both through athletics and also beyond their sports activities.
“P3R’s mission is to inspire any and all to MOVE, and we are thrilled for this opportunity to recognize outstanding high schoolers who are making a difference in their community and inspiring others both on and off the field,” said Jason Kushner, treasurer of the P3R Board of Directors.
Here are the details:
Who should apply for this new scholarship?
Qualified applicants must be high school seniors. Recipients will be selected based on a combination of school involvement, athletic participation, academics, community service, leadership and their responses to essay questions.
