OSU Community Leader Scholarship
As June rolls around each year, another class of high school graduates from our club moves on. Outside of being soccer athletes, referees or coaches, many of these young people represent tremendous young leaders within the community. With this in mind, the OSU Board of Directors, in conjunction with local participating secondary schools partnered to create the OSU Community Leader Scholarship.
The bursary is awarded to a member of each schools graduating class who best represents a dedication to the sport of soccer, scholastic excellence as well as demonstrated leadership abilities. Since 2015, we are very pleased to have St. Joseph’s, Mother Theresa, St. Francis Xavier, St. Mark’s, South Carleton and Longfields-Davidson High Schools participate in the program.
“The OSU Community Leader Scholarship was a priority for our club, to ensure that we continue to recognize the outstanding achievements by the young people that make up OSU. The support we received from the local high schools has been terrific, and as community partners we are very pleased to continue the program in 2016” noted OSU Club President, Bill Michalopulos.
