In memory of Billy Smith, the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois is offering the Billy Smith Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship is open to graduating High School senior students who also have the same passion for sports and academics.

Aside from being a graduating student, the applicant must also reside in Winnebago, Boone, Ogle, or Stephenson County and has played at least 3 years, including senior year, of High School baseball or softball. The applicant must also have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or 4.0.

Aside from the documents proving the applicant’s eligibility, an essay must also be submitted.
