Dear Doughboy Families,
We would like to invite you all to the 12th annual scholarship banquet that we will be hosting on May 31st, 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 $10 per person and includes a breakfast buffet. To reserve seating, you can contact Marisol (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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 twelve 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.
As coaches, we try our best to consistently touch base with our alumni as they maneuver through their college experiences and beyond. We can honestly say they are amazing people who are doing incredible things in their lives. Doughboys approach life with passion, dedication and an unbelievable work ethic. It has been inspiring to watch as our alumni mature and understand what the sport of wrestling has given them. They have sacrificed themselves to the sport and learned not through their wins or accolades that they received, but through the little lessons gained from grinding on a day to day basis.
During our banquet, we will award around 6-8 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. Also, email me or Coach Shunamon your essays and the applications which are located on our website doughboywrestling.com. The last date to get us your jacket sizes will be Friday, May 17th. After this date, we cannot guarantee you a jacket.
This year's senior class will be attending the University of Maryland, Trinity College, Johns Hopkins University, Castleton University, American University, New England College 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.
