The Washington Premier Athlete Award recognizes the outstanding achievements among the WPFC high school seniors in the areas of academic excellence, community service involvement and athletic achievement and sportsmanship. To that end, the club encourages all of the athletes to make a difference whether it is on the pitch, in the classroom or in the community. This year the club received a record number of applications for the Senior Athlete Scholarship Award. All the applicants are very qualified and are true champions on and off the field.
After careful review and discussion of all the applications, the committee is pleased to announce the 2013 winners in alphabetical order and the school they will be attending.
