Source of Funds: The Club designates money for the program out of our general fund. Monies are raised by contributions, raffles, race proceeds and sponsor donations. Our generous sponsors have included the Ohio Teamster Sports Committee, Inc., Medical Mutual, Second Sole, and Lake Health. Many thanks to our Race Directors and all the volunteers for their hard work and sacrifice. All efforts are deeply appreciated and have made this program a huge success and something the Club can be very proud of.
The Selection Process: Application forms are sent to area high school coaches and guidance counselors. This is open to High School Seniors. Student submitted applications and school references are reviewed by volunteers on the Club’s Scholarship Committee. The four categories of consideration are contributions to cross country or track, academic achievements, leadership and community involvement. A group meeting then determines the finalists after extensive deliberation. It is always a difficult task as so many student-athletes have outstanding achievements.
Here is the application for 2017- NERC Nomination form 2017. Deadline is May 1 , 2017. The scholarship presentations take place at the June monthly meeting.
