County youth sports program to award $1,000 scholarship to high school senior

March 18, 2004

The Howard County Youth Program, a nonprofit sports association, will award its $1,000 Christopher Kelley Memorial Scholarship to a high school senior who has participated in HCYP-sponsored sports - baseball, softball, volleyball and basketball.

The scholarship, in its 11th year, commemorates the life of Christopher Kelley, an eighth-grader at Glenwood Middle School who played baseball in the youth program and was killed in 1989 when his bicycle was struck by a car.

"Because of his death, the kids in his class lobbied the County Council, which passed the first bicycle helmet law in the country," said his father, Thomas A. Kelley.

Application forms for the scholarship, due by April 23, are available in high school guidance offices or by contacting Stephen Lee, chairman of the Scholarship Committee. Applicants must have a 2.5 grade point average in the first semester of their senior year and have scored at least 900 on the SAT.
