MONTGOMERY – Ten Coaches’ Children Scholarship winners for 2017-18 have been selected by the Scholarship Committee of the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association (AHSADCA), according to Director Alvin Briggs.
The $1,000 need-based scholarships, presented for the tenth year by the coaches’ group, are being awarded to college-bound students whose parents are active members of the AHSADCA. The scholarships will be presented July 20 at the Championship Coaches Awards Banquet during the AHSAA Summer Conference and All-Star Sports Week in Montgomery.
“We are pleased to provide this service once again from the AHSADCA to our member coaches and athletic directors,” Briggs said. “We are very thankful for our coaches and administrators who sacrifice so much as teachers and coaches to work with our student-athletes. Their families also make much sacrifice. This is one way the AHSADCA can show its appreciation and help the children at the same time.”
