Scholarship Recipients

This annual scholarship is open to all high school seniors who have volunteered for The 2nd & 7 Foundation’s reading program. Our mission is to promote reading by providing free books and positive role models to kids in need while encouraging young athletes of the community to pay it forward. This scholarship rewards students who have demonstrated what it means to pay it forward, while showing promise to continue to live a life of service to the community.
