Dear Doughboy Families,
We would like to invite you to the 13th annual scholarship banquet that we will be hosting on July 19, 2020. Our banquet will take place from 8:30am-11:30 am at Lenzi’s Catering (800 Merrimack Avenue in Dracut, MA). The cost of the banquet will be $25 per person and includes a breakfast buffet. Due to Covid and limited seating we ask that you only purchase the tickets for one parent and wrestler(s). These tickets will need to be purchased in advanced online as we cannot have people showing up the day of the banquet to be seated. Lenzi's will be following all guidelines for restaurants and the seating will be cut in half and everyone must wear a mask into the facility but will be able to take it off to eat. Seniors may have both parents in attendance. Any questions, you can contact Marisol (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Coach Marshall.
This scholarship banquet is a very important part of our club as we honor the graduating seniors who have been through our program. It is a celebration of these kids as student-athletes where we get the opportunity to thank them for their commitment and contributions to our club. This banquet also grants our younger student-athletes the opportunity to witness the ascension from high school to collegiate wrestling and allows them to set goals for their future of collegiate wrestling. One of the biggest parts of being a student-athlete is getting into college and it is something that is very important for our younger kids to experience. Without the help and support of so many families, our scholarship banquet would not be possible. Throughout the past thirteen years, the passion and commitment that we have been able to receive have helped us to award over one hundred scholarships. Your faith in Doughboys and the student-athletes that we have guided has allowed our club to prosper. One of the best things about our club is how involved the past scholarship winners and alumni are in our program. Many of them stay in close contact with our coaches and remain a part of the club long past their high school years. They are constantly in the room to mentor our younger kids. This is something that we are extremely grateful for and embodies one of our core values of family first.
During our banquet, we will award around 8-10 scholarships to seniors in our graduating class. In this banquet, we will also award All Youth State Champs (5th-8th), High School State Champs, New England or Prep New England Champs who are in attendance with jackets. The state champs in grades k-4th will receive a t-shirt. For sizing it is essential that you look at our Facebook link or website to find the google forms to collect your sizes. Seniors email your college colors along with the sizing so that we can purchase jackets that match your schools. ** Jacket and T-shirts must be submitted by July 3rd, 2020. After this date, we cannot guarantee you a jacket or t-shirt.
This year's senior class will be attending the Williams College, Brown Univ., Ithaca College, Franklin & Marshall College, Cornell Univ., Binghamton Univ., Edinboro Univ., Bridgewater Univ, Norwich, Indiana Institute and many others. This is a great group of students who have worked tirelessly over the past couple of years to put themselves in a position to wrestle in college. If you would like to consider donating a scholarship to one of these students or donating to DWC Charities (501c3), please contact Coach Marshall (email@example.com) or Coach Shunamon (firstname.lastname@example.org). Our coaches and students thank you for your support throughout the years.
