Patrick D. Francisco, Duluth Heritage Sports Center Foundation (DHSCF) Chair, recently announced the 2015 recipients of the Ray Peterson Fund and the Thomas & Katherine Gibson Fund scholarships. They are:
Peterson Fund Scholarships: Austin Burley (Denfeld); Jared Williams, (East).
Gibson Fund Scholarships: Elizabeth Bergh (Denfeld); Kelly Punkyo (East).
The four recipients qualified for the DHSCF scholarships by virtue of their nomination by their respective school’s faculty members for consideration for the Minnesota State High School League's (MSHSL) Triple AAA Award. The minimum requirements for both awards are similar. Nominees must have notable achievements academically, participated in interscholastic sports and fine arts within their schools and have demonstrated positive citizenship traits during their high school careers.
While MSHSL’s Triple AAA Award is open to all Minnesota schools, the DHSCF’s fund scholarships are only available to ISD 709 high school students. “It’s great that there’s a state-wide program like that offered by the MSHSL.” commented Francisco. “But our focus is on the greatness that comes from our local schools. We’re very pleased and proud that we’re able to reward these fine young people for their excellent accomplishments in school, in sports and in our community.”
The $500 scholarships will continue to be awarded annually to ISD 709 seniors.
The 2015-16 hockey schedules for Duluth's three high school teams was released recently, with 32 games being played on home ice. The Northern Stars season starts on Tuesday, November 10, with Section 7 rival Cambridge-Isanti providing the opposition. The boys season opens on Friday, November 27 with Denfeld taking on against Red Wing, followed by a doubleheader on Saturday, November 28, with East vs. Wayzata at noon Denfeld vs. Bloomington Jefferson at 2 PM.
The complete schedules for all three teams may be found by clicking on the "High School Hockey" tab, at the upper left of this page.
During the 2014-15 high school hockey season, every time a Duluth High School Hockey team scores a power play goal, the cost of a college education for four (4) Duluth High School seniors becomes more affordable!
Through a special arrangement with the Duluth Heritage Sports Center Foundation (DHSCF), Patrick D. Francisco & Associates, a financial advisory firm helping people create sound retirement strategies, will provide a financial donation with each power play goal during the regular season to help fund four $500 scholarships to be presented to both male & female student athletes from Duluth Denfeld & Duluth East high schools.
Male athlete scholarships will be awarded through the Ray Peterson Fund. The female scholarships will be awarded in the name of former Duluth school teachers Thomas & Katherine Gibson. The DHSCF administers both funds.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of citizenship, academic performance and athletic participation in any interscholastic sport, as determined by members of the school’s faculty.
The scholarship program will be promoted during each high school home game as the “Power Play Payoff”, presented by Patrick D. Francisco & Associates. All proceeds, without exception, will benefit the scholarship funds.
Recently, the Dave Goldberg Family Branch of the Boys & Girls Club was added to the “Safe Place” sites in Duluth. The Goldberg Branch is housed in the Duluth Heritage Sports Center.
“Safe Place” is a refuge for youth at risk. Any young person who has run away or is in a threatening situation is able to receive assistance at any place identified by a yellow-and-black diamond shaped sign that indicates that the facility has staff that has been trained to provide this assistance.
When sought out as a place of refuge, personnel at the Boys & Girls Club will call a volunteer who will provide transportation for the young person to the Lutheran Social Service’s Bethany Crisis Shelter in Duluth. Within 30 minutes, a trained representative of the agency will visit with the youth and address the situation.
The “Safe Place” sign is located at the front of the DHSC Entry Plaza.
