Paddy Damschen Memorial Scholarship Fund

Will be available online around April/May

On March 8, 2011, Helena lost one of its greatest fans of high school athletics, especially high school track and field. Paddy Damschen was an amazing mother, an avid runner herself, a community-minded woman, and a great supporter of track and field. Paddy also believed that any young person could achieve their dreams and goals with the support of their family, friends, and community.
In honor of this outstanding member of the Helena community, and the track and field community, her family began the Paddy Damschen Memorial Scholarship Fund (referred to as the PDM Fund from this point forward) in 2011. The fund was established for the purpose of providing scholarship money to high school seniors that have competed in high school track and field, have exhibited a commitment to their athletics, academics, and community, and are
entering their first year of higher education.

The PDM Fund’s goal is to provide assistance to worthy students in furthering their education. PDM scholarship funds are intended to assist students with the cost of tuition and fees. Funds cannot be used for housing or any other incurred expenses. Funds must be used during the regular school year and cannot be used for summer courses. If tuition is paid in full by any other scholarship, grant or other financial aid, the PDM scholarship may be used for books. The scholarship winner will be reimbursed upon receipt by the PDM Fund of a receipt showing proof of textbook purchases.

Eligibility
• Applicants must be a permanent resident of Montana.
• Scholarships are to be utilized at institutions of higher learning. (Additional points will be
given for those attending Montana-based institutions.)
• Students must be enrolled as a full-time student during the 2018-2019 school year
(excluding summer session)
• Students must have participated in track and field in high school for at least 2 years.
• Applicants must be on the varsity track and field team for at least their senior year.

Harold Shepherd Memorial Scholarship

  • Deadline: April 15, 2019
  • Deadline Details: Application may be submitted to the CHS Career Center (Mrs. Doran) on or before April 15, 2019.
  • Award: Up to $1,000
  • Download Application

The Harold Shepherd Memorial scholarship is an annual recognition of a senior track and field student athlete from either Helena high school who embodies the spirit and character of Harold. Quality candidates are those individuals who exhibit selflessness, sportsmanship, work ethic, and commitment to community and family. Candidates are evaluated by their character and their ability to persevere in the face of adversity, and not necessarily by their athletic accomplishments.
Harold was born of humble beginnings during the Great Depression, when a man’s character and work ethic was highly valued. Actions not words, was a principle that Harold lived by. Being the last of eight children, Harold understood the value of manual labor at an early age. Whether it was hauling ice, swathing hay, or construction work, a strong back provided the means to see the positive results of work. Harold’s ability to overcome tragedy was another strong characteristic. He lost his father at an early age and his twin brother to a drowning accident during high school. Harold’s sense of responsibility to his family became evident as he made many sacrifices to care for his mother. Sports became an outlet for Harold to channel his energies – primarily the sport of track and field. As a natural born athlete, coupled with an incredible work ethic and a never-give-up attitude, Harold was an all-star distance runner and was offered a college scholarship. Harold remained true to his mother and decided to stay in Helena, later buying and operating a small cattle ranch and an auto-repair business into his late 70’s. Despite his personal decision, Harold understood the value of higher education and the many benefits it affords, and he helped to ensure that his children had the option to attend college. Harold was an honest, humble, courageous, and loving man. He fully engaged life’s challenges and endeavored to persevere for the benefit of himself and his loved ones.

Application Requirements
The scholarship is offered to a graduating senior who has competed with the Bengal or Bruin Track and Field team during all four years of high school.
Letter of Reference
One letter of reference is required from someone other than your track coach or an immediate family member.
Essay
Please attach a one-page, typewritten essay describing your selflessness, sportsmanship, work ethic, and commitment to community and family. Include any school or community-related activities with examples of your leadership skills, along with any educational or career plans. Please include the name and address of the university, college, or technical school you are planning to attend.
Transcript
Please attach a current transcript of your high school record. This does not have to be an official transcript.
Method of Payment
If awarded, scholarship funds will be paid by the Helena School District directly to the financial aid or registrar’s office of your university, college, or technical school.
