MHSAA Scholar Athlete Award Nominations are now open

4587481_g

The Michigan High School Athletic Association sponsors a Scholar/Athlete Scholarship annually.  This scholarship is for seniors who have a 3.5 GPA and have lettered in at least one MHSAA sponsored Varsity sport prior to their senior year.  If you are interested in applying be sure to see Mr. Werley in the athletic office for details.  Here is some information from the MHSAA that gives some additional information on the award…

  1. There may be no more prestigious honor for a scholar-athlete than this award. Even if you have a student that already has secured a full-ride scholarship, please encourage him or her to apply for this award. The 32 winners are a true representation of the term “scholar-athlete”, and winning this award should be a goal for every student.

 

  1. Encourage ALL students who meet the minimum requirement to apply for the award. Don’t just limit yourself by inviting only those with the highest GPAs. Use our 40-30-20-10 scoring formula (described athttp://www.mhsaa.com/Schools/Students/ScholarAthleteAward.aspx) to determine the best of your applicants. If you get more applicants then you’re allowed, I would be happy to send you additional certificates for ALL students who completed an application and essay.

 

  1. The essay and short answer questions are very important. Your student may be a four-time MHSAA champion with a 4.0 GPA, but if the student does not write a good and interesting essay he or she will not win. In addition, have your students work with an English teacher to proof the essay; it never hurts to have more eyeballs look at the app before submission.

Yours in sport,

AD Werley
