ENDICOTT – On Thursday, February 13, the members of Chapter IV for the New York State Athletic Administrators Association recognized two athletes who were selected as the winners of the Essay Award Scholarship.
One of the two recipients was Norwich High School senior Carson Maynard. Of the 27 submissions throughout the Section IV area, Maynard’s essay submission explained how high school athletics have impacted his life.
Maynard, a two-sport athlete in football and basketball for the Purple Tornado, has exemplified the true meaning of a student-athlete over the years as a student of Norwich as he met the required criteria in order to be considered for the award.
For anyone who submits an application to the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA), the student must be in their senior year and have either a b-plus average, be ranked in the top 25-percent of their class or score a 24 on the ACT’s or a 1100 SAT score.
