SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM -- 2013
A Scholarship Program was established in 1995 by the Herndon Swim League to help
an HSL graduate defray a portion of their college expenses. In 1998 the Herndon
Swim League expanded this program to choose two graduating senior swimmers to
receive a cash award to be used at the colleges of their choice, and in 1999 it
was decided to award up to six scholarships. This will continue in 2013 with
the awarding of up to six $500 scholarships. This number may increase depending
on the results of the Third Annual Silent Auction.
