Athletic Awards

Peekskill Rotary Recognizes Top High School Athletes

The Scholarships and Awards Program of the Rotary Club of Peekskill has as its primary objectives recognizing the achievements of students graduating from Hendrick Hudson, Peekskill and Walter Panas High Schools; and encouraging higher education for young people in the Peekskill and Cortlandt area. The club’s scholarships and awards support study in a wide range of post-high school study in 4-year, 2-year and vocational programs. Distinctive to the Rotary program is the focus on service to community, school and family among criteria for selection, in addition to academic achievement. This criterion is founded on Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self.

Each year the Peekskill Rotary Club recognizes exceptional athletes among the graduating senior classes at Hendrick Hudson, Peekskill and Walter Panas high schools with Athletic Awards. Recipients are selected by the high school Athletic Departments.

The Athletic Awards comes with a grant of $500 and go to the top male and female athlete in each school. Recipients selected by May 20, 2024.
