The Ron Engle Scholarship Fund will award up to three $2,000 scholarships to graduating seniors from Middletown High School. To be eligible, students must plan to pursue a degree in education, sports medicine, physical therapy or athletic training. The award is payable to the chosen college to be applied to the student's tuition.
Students should be of good character and are required to provide two letters of recommendation (one from a high school teacher). An essay must communicate the student's character, promise and financial need.
Applications are available at http://www.fordhamlee.org/memorial-fund/fordham-lee-poffenbarger-memorial-fund-scholarship. The deadline is May 8.
Students are encouraged to submit their application package without letters of reference and transcripts, if necessary. Those can be mailed or e-mailed (firstname.lastname@example.org). Copies of the transcripts are accepted vs. a certified copy from the guidance office.
This scholarship fund was set up to honor the life and career of Coach Ron Engle for all he did to help young people and advance the athletic program at Middletown High School.
