In the fall of 2003, ENSA felt the need to recognize the many outstanding young persons who are involved in soccer within our clubs and communities. The league decided to fund annual one-time $500.00 scholarships to deserving graduating high school seniors. The award is based on academic achievement, school involvement, and service to ENSA related activities. Those activities can include playing, coaching, or refereeing in the league.
Kristin Burgett is the daughter of Lanyard and Cathy Burgett of Springfield. A Senior at Platteview High School, Kristin is an Honor Roll and Merit Roll student, active in drama and athletics, and Future Business Leaders of America.
