Congratulations to Cassidy Haglund from Steinbrenner High School
and Aidan Bursten and Hannah Oberbroeckling from King High School as this year's Buddy Baseball scholarship winners. Cassidy, Aidan and Hannah each received a check for $750 at the end of the Buddy Baseball season. Scholarship applicants submitted essays and responded to questions describing their extracurricular activities, community service involvement, why they chose to participate in Buddy Baseball, a highlight of their Buddy Baseball experience and how they thought their Buddy Baseball involvement will help them in the future.
Cassidy has participated in Buddy Baseball for 8 seasons (4 years) and will be attending Florida State University. Aidan and Hannah have each participated all 16 seasons (8 years). Aidan will be attending the University of Richmond and Hannah will be attending the University of Central Florida. This year, Dr. Howard and Donya McLeod made a generous contribution to the scholarship fund allowing a third scholarship winner and the honorable mention applicants to each receive a $100 for their commitment to the league.
