The Andrea Mall Memorial Scholarship

Andrea Mall was a dedicated team mom and Board member for the Hagerty Pop Warner program for six years.  On June 9th 2011, Andrea lost her hard fought battle with cancer and was sadly taken from us too soon. In Andrea’s name, Hagerty Pop Warner will award at least one (1) $500.00 contribution to a graduating High School senior who played Pop Warner Football/Cheerleading for at least four years in the Hagerty Pop Warner program and attended High School at Hagerty High School. The application is only available to students who plan to attend an accredited College or University in the fall of the year it’s awarded. Upon being chosen proof of enrollment must be provided. The deadline for submission of the application is May 31st of each year. It should also be noted that the scholarships will be either forwarded directly to the school and credited to the students account or given directly to the student, based on individual circumstances.

The Rainbow Spirit Award is given annually as voted on by the head cheer coaches, cheer coordinator and assistant cheer coordinator to an individual Hagerty Cheerleader from the prior season who exemplified the characteristics of Caitlin Downing during her influential five years on earth. These include, but are not limited to, maintaining a positive attitude, being respectful to all coaches and teammates, showing an enthusiastic outlook and an unwavering commitment to her team despite her challenges and/or struggles outside of cheer. This recipient’s contributions to the Hagerty Pop Warner program may not be “measured” in performance but be evident in her outstanding personal character and extraordinary impact on the community.

The John McCarthy Coaching Award is given annually to honor the memory of a very brave man who gave a considerable amount of his time to this program, community and the kids that live in it. Think of it as the Hagerty Pop Warner Coach of the Year. Football and cheer coaches will nominate coaches to the Executive Council who will vote on the candidate that mostly represents the characteristics of Coach John. At the conclusion of each season the individual(s) who are nominated and receives the most votes will have exemplified the characteristics of coach John McCarthy including, but aren’t limited to, serving the kids, program and the community with a great passion to make the kids better players, students, individuals, a positive contributor and influencer for others. Coach John always brought the best out of the kids regardless of what sport he was coaching. He preached hard work, dedication, giving your all if it’s something worth doing, and academic success. The award has really nothing to do with wins or losses or how far the team advances in competition and more to do with serving the kids, the program, and the community making it a better place for those around you. Nominations are due no later than October 31st.   The winning recipient will be selected no later than November 30th of the same calendar year and recognized at the start of the following season during parent night.
