Varsity alumni club to present six scholarships at awards night

To the Editor:

The Parkland Trojan Varsity Alumni Club is presenting six scholarships at this year's Parkland Athletic Award Night.

The club will give its traditional $2,000 scholarship to a male and female varsity senior.

In memory of Gary Wagner, 1965 graduate and state record holder in the 100 yard dash, there will be a $1,000 scholarship to a male and female track participant.

In memory of Craig Knauss, the alumni secretary who recently passed away, the club will present a $1,000 scholarship to a male and female volleyball participant.

These scholarships will put the Trojan alumni's total to more than $100,000 in scholarship funds provided since its inception.

Rob Steltzer has been appointed as the new secretary for the Trojan Varsity Alumni Club and Dale Snyder has been appointed as a director.

The new sports memorial will have lights placed to highlight the memorial and it will add additional lighting to the entrance and exit to the gym.

Bricks can still be purchased for the memorial walkway with your name engraved.

The names will be engraved into the existing bricks at the end of the school term.

The annual golf tournament will take place Aug. 16 at Iron Lakes Country Club.

We are encouraging new members to attend our next meeting 7 p.m. May 14, at Willow Tree Grove Pub.
