The Carl Fricks Sportsmanship Scholarship
The Carl Fricks Sportsmanship Scholarship is presented annually to graduating high school seniors from the St. Louis metro area who embody outstanding sportsmanship. Administered by the St. Louis Sports Commission Associates – the Sports Commission’s young professionals group – the scholarship recognizes individuals who exemplify honesty, integrity, civility, selflessness, kindness, compassion and class in athletic competition. Candidates are evaluated strictly on their approach, character and respect for others on the playing field. Athletic performance (wins and other stats) does not factor in the selection – making the scholarships unique.
The Associates launched the Sportsmanship Scholarship in 2009. The group raises funds for the program and selects its recipients. In eight years, the Associates have awarded $60,000 in academic scholarships to 23 college-bound students. The scholarship program is part of the Sports Commission’s efforts to promote and encourage sportsmanship in the community. Visit sportsmanship.org for more information.
