Jonathan McJunkin from Muncy (Pa.) Junior and Senior HS and Kelsey Metz of Williamsport (Pa.) Area HS, were recognized as the top recipients at the 2010 Carl E. Stotz Scholarship Luncheon.

Each spring Little League Baseball and Softball rewards high school scholars in the area with the Carl E. Stotz Little League Scholarship. The 10 recipients exemplify the same ideals as the founder of the world’s largest organized youth sports program: good citizenship, hard work, character, courage and loyalty.

Mr. Stotz’s vision was of a game played by children that would help build and shape those who played it into productive adults.  This is the 17th year of the scholarship program, established by the Little League International Board of Directors, which rewards academic excellence and citizenship with financial assistance for their higher education.

Including this year’s recipients, more than $100,000 has been awarded to 120 Lycoming County students since the inception of the scholarship program. Each of the recipients was honored at the annual luncheon held today at Little League International in South Williamsport, Pa.

Scholarships totaling $8,000 are awarded each year to five male and five female high school seniors. The scholarships perpetuate the memory of Little League’s founder, recognizing his commitment to the development of youth in the county.

All graduating seniors in the top 25 percent of their class at the nine Lycoming County high schools, who have demonstrated good citizenship and whose spirit exemplifies effort, determination and persistence in attaining the goal of higher education, are eligible to apply.  Each interested senior also submits two letters of recommendation and an essay on what they hope to achieve through higher education.

From the 57 applicants for the scholarships this year, the recipients of the $2,000 scholarships are Jonathan McJunkin from Muncy Junior/Senior High School and Kelsey Metz from Williamsport Area High School.  They were chosen from a group of 10 finalists.

Mr. McJunkin will be attending Macalester College and Miss Metz will continue her education at Vassar College.

The other eight finalists all receive $500 scholarships. They include: James Kustanbauter (Hughesville High School); Chet Ritter (Hughesville High School); Jacob Rogers (Jersey Shore Area High School); Neil Forquer (St. John Neumann Regional Academy); Maja Ostojic (Hughesville High School); Lindi Crist (Montoursville Area High School); Neha Nagpal (Muncy Junior/Senior High School); and Chelsea Monroe (Muncy Junior/Senior High School).

“It is our pleasure to acknowledge the efforts of the recipients and honor their accomplishments,” Stephen D. Keener, President and Chief Executive Officer of Little League Baseball and Softball, said.  “Each of the young adults we recognized today possesses the traits and has the same vision Carl Stotz had when laying the foundation for Little League. We recognize the same selflessness, determination and inspiration that Mr. Stotz lived his life by with the presentation of these scholarships.”
