In October of 2012 Donnie Fox, a member of the Chicago Fire Department, passed away from brain cancer. Don was an exceptional athlete and continued to enjoy sports and exercising until shortly before his death. Don's philosophy in life had always been for one to perform with excellence and integrity while on the field and off. In an effort to continue his legacy, we at Ignite the Spirit are asking for you to consult with your athletic directors and/or coaches and have them nominate one student who displays the same spirit as Donnie did by writing a 1-2 paragraph explanation describing why they feel this student deserves the scholarship. The scholarship will be worth $2500 for the selected student and can be used towards tuition for the 2017 - 2018 school year. Ignite the Spirit is proud to offer this annual scholarship, and we are so proud to honor Don in this way.
Please have the school administrators fill out the below form to nominate their athlete. This scholarship application will be open from September 1st thru November 1st; please complete the form to be considered for this scholarship.
