These players will have demonstrated a strong commitment to soccer while maintaining high levels of academic achievement as well as providing leadership both on the field and in the community. The recipients are honored, and the scholarship awarded, at the annual WHS awards banquet at the end of each school year.
The Marshall Raidbard Memorial Award
As a member of the The Southwest District ("SWD”) of the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (“CJSA”), the WSA participates with other SWD member clubs to offer an annual financial award. The application process and administration of the award is managed by the CJSA SWD. The CJSA SWD established the scholarship to honor Mr. Marshall Raidbard who served in a volunteer capacity as Vice President to the District for many years. The amount of the award varies from year to year, but is typically in the range of $1,500-$2,000. The award is presented to graduating high school seniors pursuing a higher education that has been involved with a SWD program (player, referee, coaching). The number of awards granted will depend on the number of member clubs that sponsor the scholarship program.
