But this is the first time they’ve aided their former athletes. "There aren’t as many scholarship opportunities available for college upperclassmen", said Pruitte. "We’re hoping to get the word out to our former Blue Devils who are juniors or seniors in college that they can apply for ours. We haven’t forgotten them." He added, "If this goes well we plan to make this an annual scholarship."
All former LHS athletes meeting the above qualifications are urged to apply. Applications may be picked up at Lebanon High. They must be turned in by US mail only to Blue Devil Booster Club, PO Box 253 Lebanon, TN 37088 no later than July 1, 2009.
The winner will be selected by the administration of LHS. Anyone with questions may contact Pruitte at 615-364-2862.
