SLHS Hall of Fame
SLHS Sports Hall of Fame
STUDENT ATHLETE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The South Lakes High School Sports Hall of Fame was started in 2006 with two goals:
To honor those Administrators, Coaches, Competitors, and members of the South Lakes Family who have made significant contributions to developing and sustaining Seahawk Pride through sport and sportsmanship.
To develop and fund a scholarship program that assists student athletes who are in financial need in order to continue their education after leaving South Lakes.
The aim of the Scholarship Program is to provide help to students who have participated in sports at South Lakes but are not being funded by athletic scholarships at the post-high school level. The primary sources of funding for what we hope will be an annual scholarship are the small margin of profit earned at the Induction Banquet and public donations. Your support in this endeavor is greatly appreciated as we work to help future Hall of Fame members.
