ECTA Scholarship for High School Student
Every year, the Evanston Community Tennis Association awards two scholarships–one for a senior boy and one for a senior girl who play on ETHS tennis teams. The scholarship is designed to provide assistance to those who have demonstrated excellence to their team, in their school and in their community. Excellence is determined by a combination of athletics, leadership, academics and community spirit. Applicants are asked to provide a letter of endorsement, as well as a 450-500-word essay describing how involvement in tennis has impacted his or her life. The winner receives an award certificate and a check for $500. Every year so far, we have received exceptional scholarship applications from ETHS tennis players. This fall was no exception. After careful consideration, the ECTA board of directors has made its selection.
Congratulations to the recipient of the 2013 ECTA Girls’ Tennis Scholarship: Talia Wertico.
