MSGA SCHOLARSHIP FUND
ANNOUNCES NEW SCHOLARSHIPS
Every year the Maine State Golf Association, Inc. grants several scholarships to outstanding Maine youth who have an active interest in golf. Good for $1,100 a year for the four years of undergraduate study, this scholarship is one of the largest in the state granted by a non-profit organization.
The MSGA is very proud of its commitment to youth and this year – even in this economy where everyone is cutting back – will award about $50,000 in total scholarship money. At is May meeting, the Scholarship Board announced 13 new candidates for the yearly scholarship, and one special candidate for involvement in golf.
Several scholarships are named after long-time contributors and past MSGA officials, who have made the MSGA Scholarship Fund sustainable for the future. Francis Winchenbach was the President of the MSGA when the Scholarship Fund was started in 1950, and an additional $500 award for the first year goes to the student with the highest grade point average. This year’s award goes to Emma Senzek of Island Falls. The Scholarship Fund was endowed with donations given in the memory of Rock Labbe, and the Labbe Scholarship this year goes to Jason Harris of Bath.
The Richardson Award is given in honor of long-time MSGA scorer Davis Richardson of New Gloucester and this award will go to Orrin Googins of Gray, while David Gushee of Gorham will receive his award in memory of Dan Hurley. Finally, the Women’s Maine State Golf Association award will go to Kate Merrill of Portland and North Yarmouth Academy.
The complete list of this year’s winners are, in alphabetical order:
Eric Angis of Saco, who will be a sophomore at Methodist University in the fall, son of Lori Angis; Owen Chaplin of New Gloucester, son of John and Louise Chaplin; Ian Dockham of South Berwick, son of Constance Dockham; Owen Googins of Gray, son of Steve and Robin Googins; David Gushee of Gorham, son of Vaughn and Gushee; Jason K Harris of Bath, son of Jeff and Laurel Harris; Jonathan Humphrey of Presque Isle; Shawn Keenan of North Anson, son of Edward and Mary Keenan; Kate Merrill of Portland, daughter of Dan and Belinda Merrill; Ian Messier of Topsham, son of Kevin and Ellen Messier; Cameron Ray of Belgrade, son of Richard and Barbara Ray; Jonathan Roy of Mercer, son of Arthur and Valerie Worthen-Roy; and Emma Senzek, of Island Falls, daughter of Randy and Stacey Emery.
Brandon Wohl, who is a student at the University of Southern Maine, will receive the MSGA’s Golf Recognition Scholarship, a one-time $500 award. Wohl, a regular participant in MSGA, New England golf and USGA events, works at Nonesuch River Golf Club.
As is evidenced by the home towns of this year’s scholarship class, nearly every county in Maine is represented, with winners coming from as far south as South Berwick and as far north as Presque Isle. The criteria for the scholarship are financial need, academic achievement and involvement in golf. Selections are based upon an objective ranking of the data based on points awarded in each category. Generally, recipients have a grade point average of B+ or better and are active in golf through the MSGA Junior Program as well as at their home club. A lot of the winners also work at a golf club at some level. This award is given annually, with applications due on April 1.
