(Atlantic) Applications are now being accepted for the 4th Annual Trevor Frederickson Memorial Scholarship. Applications may be obtained from the Atlantic High School guidance office at 1201 E. 14th Street or the Atlantic High School website: www.atlantic.k12.ia.us.
Two $750 scholarships are available to those graduating from Atlantic High School in the spring of 2013. Applicants must plan to attend a college or vocational school, show involvement in school and/or community activities, supply a copy of their college acceptance letter, provide two letters of reference along with their 7 semester transcripts, and maintain academic achievement of 2.5 or better. The scholarships will be awarded at the Atlantic High School Class Night held in May.
Trevor Frederickson graduated from Atlantic High School in 2006. He went on to further his education at Southwestern Community College in Creston where he studied automotive mechanics and played baseball for the Southwestern Spartans. Two additional $750 scholarships will be available for Southwestern Community College students this fall.
Trevor, who passed away in 2009, had plans of pursuing a career in law enforcement and returning to his hometown of Atlantic. “Anyone who knew Trevor, knew he valued family, life and community. Someone once told me that Trevor is not really gone because he continues to live on in our hearts and minds. To this day, Trevor is still giving back to the community he loved to be a part of.” (Melanie Petty, mother of Trevor Frederickson)
Funds for the scholarships are raised at an annual golf tournament. Plans are already in the works for the 5th Annual T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament to be held on Saturday, August 10th, 2013. Organizers look forward to another successful tournament so they can continue to grant scholarships for many years to come.
