The Connery Ice Rink, operated by recreational facility management company, FMC Ice Sports, announces the 2013 FMC Ice Sports Skaters Scholarship. Developed in 1993 to assist students who demonstrate excellence on and off the ice, the Skaters Scholarship has since awarded over $300,000 to 360 well deserving high school seniors who are active in ice hockey, figure skating or recreational skating.
“The scholarship program is an extension of FMC’s commitment to the communities we serve,” states FMC Ice Sports President, Robert McBride. “Keeping the ice sports participation cost as affordable as possible, offering quality programs that focus on development, and helping in some small way to defray the cost of higher education are just some of the ways toward that goal.”
The 2013 Skaters Scholarship is open to all graduating high school seniors who plan to attend college this fall. The scholarship application is available at the Connery Ice Rink, 182 Shepard Street, Lynn, MA, as well as online at www.fmcicesports.com. Scholarships will be awarded to twenty students this June based on demonstrated leadership qualities, strong academic performances and extensive extracurricular and community activities.
The Skaters Scholarship application deadline is May 15th, 2013. For additional information and to download a copy of the application, please visit www.fmcicesports.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
