Three Mother McAuley High School students have been awarded Chick Evans scholarships.
Mary Joan Evans, of Chicago’s Morgan Park community; Tarran King, of Palos Heights; and Megan Malloy, of Evergreen Park, have been named 2013 Chick Evans Scholars.
The scholarships are funded through the Evans Scholars Foundation and provide four-year tuition and housing to students attending one of 17 universities throughout the country, 14 of which boast a Scholarship House.
To be eligible for a Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship, students must have a high academic standing, an impeccable caddie record for two or more years, strong character and must have demonstrated financial need.
The application process began in August. Students who advanced to a selection meeting were interviewed by committees of foundation officials, alumni and other program supporters.
Mary Joan Evans, a Beverly Country Club caddy, will attend the University of Illinois next year. Malloy, also a Beverly Country Club caddy, will attend Marquette University in Milwaukee. King, a Midlothian Country Club caddy, will attend Indiana University in Bloomington.
