The Greater Long Island Running Club is now accepting applications for the 30th annual Herb Grayson Memorial Scholarship Award, which has been previously won by Syosset High School grads Michael Kaufman (1985), Eileen Downey (1988), and Matthew Winkler (1990).
One or more awards of $2,000 each will be presented to graduating high school seniors on the basis of service to the Long Island running community.
“The qualifications for the scholarship award are very clear,” observed Running Club Scholarship Chair Erica Gassen. “We are not necessarily interested in the star of the track or cross country team, but are more interested in the youngster who helped raise the funds to send the team to an out-of-state meet, or who helped to organize a community based road race. The key is service, not athletic prowess.”
All graduating seniors residing anywhere in Nassau County or Suffolk County are eligible.
For applications or more information please call 516-349-7646 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for receipt of applications is April 2.
