A top high school athlete will get some help with college through a scholarship established to honor the memory of a man who himself was an avid amateur athlete.

The Rob Henn Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a senior Huntington North High School athlete "with unquestionable character," according to the scholarship guidelines.

The athlete must also have a high regard for teammates and a respect for opponents.

While scholastic achievement and financial need will be considered, they will not be major factors in the awarding of the scholarship.

Henn's friends and family established the scholarship fund through the Huntington County Community Foundation after his death on June 16, 2008.

Henn, a 1973 graduate of Huntington North High School, remained an avid supporter of Huntington North athletics.

Scholarship applications are available at the foundation office, 356 W. Park Drive, 356-8878, or at the HNHS guidance office. The application deadline is March 27.
