Sean Urda Memorial Soccer Scholarship

ScholarshipLogoOn January 26th, 2015, in his senior year at John Glenn High School, Sean Urda tragically lost his life in a sledding accident. He was one of those special people who lived every day as if it were his last. He knew that a smile made a difference and laughter could warm your heart. He touched everyone he came in contact with in some special way. “Work hard, play hard” is a phrase that applies to the way Sean lived his life. He was always aiming higher, working his way to become the best, whether in school, on the field, or in life. Above all else Sean loved his family, friends & soccer and he was loved by all in return.

This scholarship has been established to honor the memory of a very special young man who accomplished in 17 years what would take a lifetime for others. These scholarships will be awarded to HS Seniors, who exemplify the traits that Sean possessed. The ideal candidate should possess some of the following qualities: strong family values, leadership, team play, active in school and understand the value of a good education.
