Director's Column: LHSAA Scholarships & Awards

Updated:

 

by: Kenny Henderson, Executive Director

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) will continue its tradition of steering Louisiana's student-athletes toward a college education by granting numerous scholarships to deserving persons. Those student-athletes who combine community service, academic achievement and on-field success make up the award recipients each year, and the awards they receive are products of the generosity of our organization's corporate sponsors and partners. Be on the lookout for the application forms for this year's scholarships and awards as they will be posted to our website on Monday, March 3, 2014.

With the help of our valued partners, there will be 24 scholarships available this year valued at a combined total of $31,000. The list of this year's scholarship sponsors are below along with the awards they are offering to our student-athletes.

State Farm Insurance
One student-athlete is chosen from each of the following sports to receive a $1,000 scholarship, in addition to one male and female recipient selected at-large: girls' and boys' basketball, girls' and boys' track-and-field, baseball, softball, football and volleyball. The at large category includes other LHSAA sanctioned sports that are not previously listed. Students must earn a 3.5 GPA through seven semesters and be exemplary in community service, school activities and leadership.

Fodale Leadership
J.C. Fodale Energy Services awards two $2,500 scholarships; one male and one female each. Student-athletes must graduate from an LHSAA member school, in pursuit of a business degree, must earn a minimum of a 3.5 GPA and exemplify leadership skills on and off the playing field.

David Green/Picadilly
Two student-athletes are chosen to receive a $2,500 scholarship; one male and one female each. These scholarships are awarded to student-athletes attending LSU in Baton Rouge in the College of Human Sciences & Education as an Education major.

Musemeche Photography
Another LHSAA sponsor, Musemeche Photography, awards two scholarships of $1,000—one each to a male and female underprivileged student-athlete choosing to attend a Louisiana college or university.

Fuzzy Brown Memorial
Family and friends of James E. "Big Fuzzy" Brown and Ellis A. "Little Fuzzy" Brown, both members of the Louisiana High School Sports Hall of Fame, select a male and female graduating senior student-athlete to each receive a $1,500 scholarship to attend a Louisiana college of his or her choice.

LHSCA
The Louisiana High School Coaches' Association (LHSCA) awards four $1,000 scholarships to two male and two female graduating seniors who are children of LHSCA members and have proven they are capable of succeeding at the college level through test scores, class rank, GPA or other observable qualities.

Fox Sports New Orleans
The Fox Sports New Orleans scholarships are a new addition to the LHSAA Scholarship Program. This scholarship will award $1,000 to one male and one female student-athlete each pursuing major in Broadcast Journalism.
