Gift For Lift Scholarships Awarded To 12 High School Bowlers
ARLINGTON, Texas – Twelve youth bowlers have been selected by the International Bowling Campus Youth Committee to receive a Gift for Life Scholarship.
Gift for Life Scholarships annually are awarded to high school students who are United States Bowling Congress Youth members and can provide evidence of financial hardship that would make obtaining a college degree challenging. Each youth bowler selected receives a $1,000 scholarship.
In addition to being USBC Youth members and current high school students, applicants had to have a current grade-point average of 2.5 or better (on a 4.0 scale), and had to provide at least two letters of reference and a school transcript.
While two scholarships are set aside each year to honor children of fire, police or emergency rescue personnel in honor of the September 11th heroes, no candidates fulfilled the requirements this year. Lennox is the
granddaughter of a police officer who served 22 years with the Skagit County Sherriff’s Office. The Gift for Life Scholarships are managed
through the SMART program. Article was posted with permission from Stars & Strikes, America's Bowling Newsmagazine. www.starsandstrikesbowling.com
