From staff reports
A scholarship program has been created for future football players at Wapakoneta High School under first-year head coach Travis Moyer.
In a letter to potential donors, Moyer says, “Wapakoneta has identified a community service project that is meaningful to its school and community.”
The letter states “this scholarship is to commend players for their 4 years of participation in the Wapakoneta Varsity Football program and promote higher level of education beyond high school.”
In order to be eligible to receive funds from the program, student-athletes must participate in the Wapakoneta varsity football program all four years of high school and choose to continue their education at either a two- or four-year college.
The number of student-athletes receiving funds each school year is not limited. If the senior has met the two criteria, he will receive a portion of the program’s funds.
The football program is seeking funds to “help us recognize these student-athletes,” the letter states.
Moyer writes in the letter, “support and generosity is appreciated greatly by our program” and “thank you … for paying it forward to future football players at Wapakoneta!”
Those wishing to donate to the scholarship program may write a check to Wapakoneta Athletic Boosters (Scholarship Fund) and return them to: Travis Moyer, Head Football Coach, Wapakoneta High School, 1 W. Redskin Trail, Wapakoneta, OH 45895.
Moyer said the football program will donate $500 to the scholarship.
