Posted by Chris Brown on June 11, 2010 – 12:00 pm

The Bills Alumni Association in conjunction with the Professional Athletes Foundation and the NFLPA will be presenting a pair of Scholar Athlete scholarships to two Buffalo city school students this afternoon (Friday).

The two scholar athletes, Shannon McDonald from City Honors and Steven Tarasek from Hutch Tech, will be presented their $ 2,500 Scholarship Award by Buffalo School Superintendent Dr. James Williams and Buffalo Bills Alumni President Booker Edgerson, along with other Bills Alumni members at a ceremony to be held in City Hall at 2 pm.

The Professional Athletes Foundation believes that student athletes should be recognized for their academic achievement and should be encouraged to pursue career goals beyond athletics. The Professional Athletes Foundation supports scholarships for a high school student-athlete who lives in a city that has a National Football League Retired Players Chapter.
