Midkiff Challenge Foundation Scholarship
The Midkiff Challenge Foundation was formed by members of the Parkwood Community in and around Monroe, NC, in memory of Joey Midkiff, Parkwood High School Class of 1993, who lost his life on September 7, 1999. Joey’s energy, playful nature and talent on the soccer field enhanced the lives of those around him. The Foundation’s mission is to help enhance the lives of its recipients by investing in their pursuit of higher education and by serving as a consistent positive support of recreational athletics.
The Midkiff Challenge Foundation proudly sponsors the Midkiff Challenge Scholarship. Two annual awards of $500 each are available to students who currently attend Parkwood High School, demonstrate academic excellence and will enter an institution of higher learning in the Fall. One of these awards may be restricted to a former varsity soccer player. The number and amount of awards will fluctuate based on fundraising.
