Local scholar-athletes to be honored
The Aroostook League’s annual scholar-athlete banquet is set for Monday, March 12, at 6 p.m. at the Caribou Regional Technology Center.
The Aroostook League invites a male and female scholar/athlete selected by each school’s athletic administrator or a coach. A buffet banquet will be served and Mark Rossignol, owner of the County Physical Therapy and an inductee into the Maine Sports Legends Hall of Honors, will be the guest speaker.
Following the meal, each student/athlete will be recognized and will receive a certificate of recognition for their success on the field of play and in the classroom.
The highlight of the banquet will be when five boys ands five girls will have their names drawn to receive a $400 award to be used for their education expenses.
Each award winner will be introduced by their school’s athletic director, who will then present a brief biography of the student/athlete. They will receive payment upon successful completion of the first semester of their freshman year.
