Garfield High School
The John Benson Scholarship Fund is dedicated to helping individuals in financial need through a scholarship program for student athletes of James A. Garfield High School who wish to continue their education. Our goal is to help deserving individuals within our community achieve their career goals, an objective which has the added benefit of bettering the community at large. In short, our goal is to ensure that no deserving athlete in our community will be deprived of higher education because of a shortage of funds.
The annual selected scholarship recipients must be promising student athletes who have demonstrated their desire to further their education through their ability to balance school work, extracurricular activities and home life. Students in their senior year must be recommended by a teacher and provide an essay as to who they are and what they want to accomplish in life, with an emphasis on some day giving back to the community.
