High School Scholarship

The Western Mass Runners' Hall of Fame seeks to recognize those individuals and teams that have made significant contributions to the sport of running and the running community in Western Massachusetts. As part of our contribution to the future running community, the Hall of Fame is awarding two $1000 scholarships to Western Mass high school seniors who demonstrate a passion for running and are outstanding local citizens. These scholarships are funded in memory of Lavender Towse, who brought passion and joy to the high school running community.
