The Marty Mart Scholarship Award
2013 Marty Mart Scholarship Applications Being Accepted
What is the Marty Mart Scholarship Award?
Two Marty Mart Scholarship Awards are given each school year to two eighth grade CYO players – one in the winter for a player in girls' CYO volleyball and one in the spring for a player in any other CYO sport.
The scholarship is named in honor of Marty Mart, longtime CYO Associate Director, who passed away in December 2002. The scholarship is not awarded on the basis of skill in sports, but on the candidate’s participation in CYO, in understanding sportsmanship and by exhibiting the Christian values that are goals of CYO. The scholarship is awarded to aid the athlete in continuing education in high school. Both Catholic school and public school students are encouraged to apply.
Marty was active for many years in the CYO program and, at the time of his passing, was coaching Girls’ CYO Volleyball. In his honor, a scholarship is awarded each season to a current eighth grade girls’ CYO volleyball player and is funded by the girls' CYO volleyball program. The scholarship for a player in the other sports is funded entriely by parish, league and individual donations.
This scholarship is funded entirely by donations. The scholarship committee will award two $500 scholarships in the 2012-2013 school year. To make a dontation, please contact CYO.
