Annual Senior Scholar Athlete Awards Banquet

TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022 – 6:30 PM – Olive Baptist Church

Each year, Pensacola Sports brings together the top senior student-athletes in each sport from Escambia and Santa Rosa County schools for a scholarship recognition program.  Join us again as we celebrate a new class of seniors at the Annual Senior Scholar-Athlete Awards Banquet.

Presentation of Awards:

Dr. Alec Kessler Memorial Scholarship

Individual Sports Awards provided by Pensacola State College

Multi-Sport Scholar-Athlete Scholarship provided by Team Superstars

Overall Senior Scholar-Athlete Awards Scholarships provided by Appleyard Agency

University of West Florida Scholarship 

Schools in both Escambia and Santa Rosa nominate their senior athletes for each sport and submit the paperwork to Pensacola Sports.  A selection committee made of educators, community leaders, and Pensacola Sports board members reviews the anonymous applications and selects the best person’s credentials for each sport.  Those are the individual sport winners.  Then they select the overall male and female winners from the individual sport winners.

For more information on the Sr. Scholar-Athlete Banquet, how to get involved, or to support next year’s event, contact Amy Marquez at Pensacola Sports at 850-434-2800 or
