This is what the DPL had to say about the Scholarships. “We had 58 applicants this year so it was a difficult decision in just selecting 6. All of our student-athletes should be proud of the work they do in the classroom and on the court or field.”
The 6 recipients will be acknowledged publicly between the girls and boys All Star games on Tuesday, February 27 at Bishop Dunne (at approximately 7pm).
