On behalf of everyone on the Zach Schwartz Memorial Scholarship committee we would like to thank all graduating high school seniors who submitted an application. The student chosen this year displayed a strong commitment through all of her employment and volunteer history and was still able to keep up her GPA. According to her teacher and coach she kept an amazingly positive attitude during a time when her heart was completely broken. Congratulations to Audrey Asplund of Coal Ridge High School, we hope that you see all your future dreams come true. We will have our yearly basketball tournament in the upcoming weeks. Please watch for the date and time in the paper. All proceeds will go to fund this scholarship and other local basketball camps.
