Scholarships available in 2016
For 2016 the MCA will award a total of 8 scholarships. Only one application is needed for students wishing to apply for our scholarships.
The Ralph Halverson Scholarship
Two $1,000 scholarships will be available for a young man and young woman (high school student athletes). This fund was created to the generosity of former Great Falls High School track & field standout Mark Reed. Ralph was a mentor to Mark throughout the years, and Mark is now Head of School at Charlotte Country Day School in Charlotte, NC. Mark donated $3,000 to fund a scholarship in Ralph’s name during a surprise visit to his former track coach at the MCA Clinic in August 2012, and pledged an addtional $7,000 ($1,000 per year for the next seven years). Mark was a tremendous and memorable athlete for the GFHS track team. In 1983, he high jumped 7’2″, long jumped 23’2″ and triple jumped 47’1-1/2″, winning all three events at the State Track Meet in ’83. Coach Halverson, who passed away in May 2013, was extremely touched by Mark Reed’s philanthropy, and enjoyed sharing the memories of Mark’s high school, collegiate, and professional accomplishments.
