"It was really exciting," said Siwicki. "I wasn't expecting to get the scholarship so it was cool to get it."
The scholarship is awarded every year to a varsity baseball and a varsity softball player. It is given to honor the tradition of sportsmanship and outstanding performance in Clarkston Baseball and Softball.
The scholarship award was started by the family of Steve Howe, who passed away in a traffic accident in 2006. Howe was a Clarkston graduate and a member of the 1976 State Championship Team.
