The Carrier Family established this scholarship as a way to give back to the community and to help a student who exemplifies the Nine Core Values that The First Tee promotes: honesty, integrity, respect, sportsmanship, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgement. These values represent some of the many inherently positive characteristics connected with the game of golf and life. The MLC committee considers each student's character, self-motivation, their written essays, as well as an individual interview with the committee. This scholarship is only available to graduating seniors who attend high school in either Harrisonburg or Rockingham County.
