Great Falls Basketball is continually interested in the development of our youth. To that end, in 2015 we introduced the Matthew Poyner Youth Leadership Scholarship. The scholarship is designed to help college-bound high school seniors in our program defray some first-year college expenses. There will be four $1,000.00 scholarships awarded this year.
This scholarship is named in honor of Matthew Poyner, who passed away suddenly in his sleep last February. He was a beloved member of our community and a student at Langley High School. He was a young man of great intelligence tempered with a great empathy for everyone he met; people were drawn to his optimism and love for life. Matt was dedicated to his studies, his family, his friends, and his community. He was also a believer in giving back to his community which is why we have named this scholarship after him.
This year, the scholarships will be awarded to four deserving seniors. Any high school senior currently in our program as a player, assistant coach, head coach, or referee may apply for this scholarship opportunity.
The award will be given to high school seniors who have distinguished themselves as leaders and dedicated members of the GF Hoops Community.
The attached form must be filled out and sent to the GF Hoops Secretary, Bina Clark, at email@example.com no later than Friday February 19th at 12:00 PM. The GF Hoops Board will then vote on the 2016 recipients and they will be announced and awarded at halftime at one of the All Star games on Saturday, March 5th, location and time TBD.
