The Maria Fisher Memorial Scholarship Award: Celebrating Kindness and Creativity

Two one time, $1,750.00 scholarships will be awarded as a memorial to Maria Fisher, a 2017 graduate of Hempfield High School, and 8-year Penn Legacy player, who passed away after being struck by a car, in October of 2017, while attending the University of Maryland as a freshman. In her years at Hempfield, and during her brief time at the University of Maryland, Maria made an effort each day to bring a smile to the faces of her friends and acquaintances. She was passionate about writing and performing music, playing soccer, as well as creative writing. She had written many short stories and poems, as well as a near -complete novel. She intended to pursue a career in Psychology or Criminology. Maria had a strong faith in God, and had a passion for serving others locally as well as through mission trips. It would be her wish to encourage others to follow those same passions. To that end, The Maria Fisher Memorial Scholarship Awards will be presented to two Penn Legacy players who meet the following requirements:
  • Current 2017/18 Penn Legacy player, that has played with Penn Legacy for a minimum of 4-years and will graduate in 2018
  • GPA: The student should have a non-weighted GPA of 3.0 or greater
  • Plans to attend any post-secondary educational institution
  • Has written or performed music of any genre (submit an example of written or performed work)
  • Provide a written character reference from a coach, teacher, pastor, or employer
Applicants will be judged by family members of Maria. All applications must be postmarked by April 27, 2018 and should be mailed to The Maria Fisher Memorial Scholarship c/o Penn Legacy Soccer Club, 1525 Oregon Pike - Suite 1602, Lancaster, PA 17601
