Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Applications Available For Jeff Jurgens Memorial Scholarships

The Scottie Booster Club is currently accepting applications for 2023 Jeff Jurgens Memorial Scholarships. The competitive annual scholarships are awarded to Valley County’s graduating seniors (Class of 2023) who played basketball in high school or who plan to pursue a degree in a medical or health-related field. Other considerations for scholarship awards are community service, academic achievement, and financial need.

Deadline for 2023 applications is Friday, May 5. Applications are available from guidance counselors in Glasgow, Hinsdale, Nashua, Frazer, Lustre, and Opheim schools. Prospective applicants can also request an application directly from Andrew McKean by emailing [email protected] or calling 406-263-5442.

The Jeff Jurgens Memorial Scholarships are funded by proceeds from the annual Jeff Jurgens Memorial Basketball Tournament, the booster club’s largest fundraiser. The 23rd JJMT was held in mid March in Glasgow, and hosted over 60 youth basketball teams from across eastern Montana.

Besides awarding JJMT Scholarships, the Scottie Booster Club helps purchase team uniforms, equipment, and otherwise supports Glasgow School District athletics and extracurricular activities. For information about becoming a Booster Club member or the benefits of membership, contact president Mike Pehlke at 406-263-9899.
