Athletics at Holly Springs High School (HSHS) has always been a very important part of student development. The Golden Hawks Booster Club will recognize senior athletes each school year in the name of the Golden Hawks Club Athletic Scholarship. A student athlete’s achievement in the classroom, school activities, special awards, honors, volunteer services, and the contributions made to his or her team will all be considered.
For 2022-23, the Golden Hawks Club will offer 6 scholarships in the amount of $1000 each.
Our goal will be to award 1 Male, 1 Female per Sports Season (Fall, Winter, Spring)
Applying for a Golden Hawks Club Athletic Scholarship does not guarantee a scholarship award.
The student athlete must be a graduating senior who has participated in HSHS athletics in an interscholastic varsity sport for at least two seasons, with at least one during the athlete's senior year at HSHS.
The student athlete must be accepted to a recognized institution of higher education (i.e., college, university, technical/vocational school).
The student athlete must be in good standing with the Holly Springs Code of Conduct.
NOTE: If the student athlete fails to enroll in an institution of higher education or be accepted for post secondary education within 6 months of the award, the athlete will forfeit the scholarship and the full monetary award of the scholarship is to be returned to the Golden Hawks Booster Club.
DISBURSEMENT OF SCHOLARSHIP
The scholarship will be distributed in the selected recipient(s) name, directly to the institution of higher education the student will attend. The recipient will be responsible for informing their selected institution of higher education of the scholarship.
