Apply for Willamette United soccer scholarship

Willamette United Soccer Club is offering two $1,500 college scholarships to 2014 high school graduates who played soccer with the club.  Applications are now being accepted and are available on the club’s website at wusc.net. Applicants must have played at least soccer with Willamette United for at least five years and have a minimum 3.0 GPA to qualify. The application deadline is May 15.

The family of the late Roger Hepburn, whose sons Alex and Blake attend West Linn High School and played soccer with the club, helped make these scholarships possible with a generous donation. Willamette United serves close to 2,000 players and their families in the West Linn-Wilsonville school district and surrounding areas. For information, call 503-638-9777.
