PIAA District VI
continues with Student Athlete Scholarship Program.
PIAA District VI will continue its scholarship program
to award $20,000 divided among 100 students from member
schools in honor of the late Dean Rossi, a longtime
Hollidaysburg Area and Huntingdon Area High School
Athletic Director and District VI official.
“At our banquet every April, we have every school
district submit a male and female name of who they
believe displayed the highest level of sportsmanship,”
said District VI Chairman Bill Marshall, who is the
superintendent at Penn Cambria High School. “Each member
school will be submitting a male and female name. We’ve
ramped up the criteria a bit. District VI is going to
give every student-athlete nominated a $200 scholarship.
We’ll be awarding $20,000 in scholarships this year.”
PIAA District VI approved this format beginning in the
2019-2020 academic year. District VI will utilize
revenue from online ticket sales to district football
and basketball tournament games to help boost the
scholarship fund, Marshall said.
“The Committee believes it is important to recognize and
award students who represent the shared values of
sportsmanship and serve as role models as
student-athletes in our member schools,” said Marshall,
who noted Rossi emphasized good sportsmanship throughout
his time as an athlete, athletic director and district
