Meldon Law has sponsored the Scholar Athlete Program since 1997. Every week of the school year, a high school senior in the North Central Florida area is chosen as the Scholar-Athlete of the Week and given a $100 scholarship and a plaque.
At the end of the school year we hold a banquet for all the winners and their families. Every year nearly 200 people attended the Scholar Athlete Banquet, where one male and one female is chosen as The Scholar Athlete of the Year. The winners receive a $1,000 scholarship plus a beautiful glass trophy commemorating their achievement. Starting in 2003 Meldon Law teamed up with WCJB TV20 to promote the event widely through the North Central Florida community.
To nominate someone for Scholar Athlete of the week, make sure he or she has at least a 3.0 GPA, is a major contributor in his or her sport and a high school senior. We’ll need the name of the Scholar Athlete nominee, his or her school, and as much contact information as you can give us on him or her and the coach. Please send your nominations to WCJB-TV20 Sports Director Adam Soloman, or you can call Adam at (352) 416-0646.
