Adding to their extensive outreach program at the youth level, Lew's and Strike King will be introducing a Freshman Scholarship Program that will reward five high school anglers as they head off to pursue their college degrees.
“Our new Freshman Scholarship Program is yet another way for our brands to give back to the sport we love. We recognize the important role that fishing has played in our lives and we feel an obligation to ensure that it gets passed on to our youth,” said Ken Eubanks, CEO of Lew’s Holding Company. “We’ve set up a fund that will award five deserving high school anglers a scholarship towards their freshman year of college. We are very excited to see the support and success of our brands translate into tangible support and success of youth fishing."
Those wishing to be considered for the Freshman Scholarship Program must complete an application that will be available on both the Lew’s and Strike King websites. The Future Fisherman Foundation will aid in the screening and processing of all applications. For more information, visit www.lews.com and www.strikeking.com.
