CHBC Scholarship information:
As a 501c3 not for profit organization, we are dedicated to assisting local charities and raising funds for our biggest project, our high school scholarship fund. Each year we award scholarships, in the form of college book store credit, to graduating seniors who play hockey for their school/local club. This year we are receiving $10,000 from the Cleveland Monsters Community Fund and will be giving away 5 awards totaling $12,000 (the breakdown of each award is in the attached flyer).
The top award in our scholarship program again this year is the Matthew Shlonsky Memorial Scholarship. This award is in honor of a previous scholarship winner who showed true leadership and dedication for the sport of hockey by single handedly forming a team at his high school. The Matthew Shlonsky Memorial Scholarship is the CHBC’s way of honoring a promising life cut short. We will award an applicant we feel displays the traits Matthew carried with him through his life: an ability to overcome adversity, a true demonstration of leadership and an unprecedented dedication to anything he set his mind to.
To qualify for an award, seniors who are earning a GPA of 3.0 or greater and are playing in one of the designated leagues must submit an essay entitled “What High School Hockey Means to Me”. They must also include a letter from their coach or assistant coach, detailing how the player displayed good sportsmanship or leadership, a completed contact form (attached to this e-mail) and a copy of current transcripts to verify their GPA.
