Nashoba Youth Hockey has begun the Bill Richards Memorial Scholarship, to be given to a local high school hockey player that has displayed commitment to their community and the sport of hockey.
The scholarship is named in honor of Bill Richards of Mickey’s Sports on Concord Road in Westford. Richards died earlier this year from a sudden heart attack after 15 years of serving various youth sports programs in the area.
Funding for the scholarship has been made possible through donations to the Nashoba Youth Hockey Association.
Applicants for the scholarship must be attending a college, university of a technical school in the Fall of 2015, and they have to meet other requirements. The deadline for the scholarship is May 10, 2015.
