Alumni Academic Scholarship
Bev Facey Community High School is inviting football program alumni to apply before November 23rd for one of three $750 scholarships, with recipients to be announced at the Falcon's year-end awards banquet.
To be eligible for one of the three scholarships available, applicants must have graduated from the school's football program; be registered in a post-secondary institution or training program; and volunteer or coach in the school or local community. Priority will be given to athletes who have played or are currently playing football at the university or junior level, and to those who continue to represent the Facey Way in their community.
"This scholarship is designed to reward former football program students for their athleticism, as well as modeling commitment, respect, dedication, loyalty, and enthusiasm in their daily lives," says head coach Curtis Martin. Applicants must provide confirmation of their school or program registration, a reference letter supporting their submission, and the completed application form to the Bev Facey Community High School general office by 4:00 p.m. on November 17, 2017.
"With the ever-increasing cost of post-secondary education, proceeds from our annual fundraising golf tournament allow us to provide some financial relief for past players who are pursuing post-secondary studies," Martin adds. Application forms are available online at www.faceyfootball.com, or at the Bev Facey general office, located at 99 Colwill Boulevard in Sherwood Park.
The alumni scholarship was created in conjunction with the 2005 Bev Facey Football 20th anniversary celebrations. Proceeds from the Adopt-a-Helmet program and Educational Sponsorship Program have created three individual scholarships of $750.00 each for 2017. It is hoped future proceeds for these two programs will continue to enhance the fund over time. Bev Facey Community High School serves approximately 1,260 students in grades 10 to 12 and is one of eight high schools in Elk Island Public Schools. The Bev Facey Falcons are ranked one of Alberta's top Tier I football teams.
