THE PLAYERS Championship Boys & Girls Club Scholarship

The St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership St. Johns (LSJ) Class of 2022 is excited to announce a scholarship for current members or alumni of THE PLAYERS Championship Boys & Girls Club in St. Augustine up to $1,500 to attend First Coast Technical College (FCTC). This exciting opportunity is through the generosity and legacy of Leadership St. Johns Class of 2022. Applications may be submitted for upcoming enrollment periods on a rolling basis and as funds are available.

Each Leadership St. Johns cohort is exposed to community leaders across Northeast Florida and learn the diverse aspects of the region’s economy.  Each class selects a project to undertake that marks their legacy in the Leadership Program.  Isabelle Renault, CEO and President of the St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce said, “The Leadership St. Johns Class of 2022 made a significant impact in our community with the addition of the STEM room at THE PLAYERS Championship Boys and Girls Club in St. Augustine.  These opportunities to learn coding, construct robots, fly drones, and develop an understanding of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math behind these activities is great.  The Class of 2022 went further by not only providing technology for the room but now will be providing scholarships for students to utilize at First Coast Technical College to apply those skills and advance their education. “

The student scholarship will truly make a difference in the lives of the young people involved.  To continue funding the scholarship, class members will work charitable hours at the St. Augustine Lions Seafood Festival on an annual basis.  For every man hour a LSJ Graduate works at the event, the St. Augustine Lions, under the leadership of Dominic Mercurio and Memory Hopkins, donates an hourly rate to the scholarship.  This year’s festival is April 6-7, 2024.
