NEW ORLEANS – (Oct. 21, 2021)  Now through January 2022, Chevron and the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation will support local student athletes pursuing higher education through the High School Scholar Athlete of The Week program. As the presenting sponsor, Chevron will partner with the Sports Foundation to recognize male and female high school seniors from the Greater New Orleans area who have achieved success both on the field and in the classroom.

Each week, two recipients will be recognized and presented an award by representatives from the Sports Foundation. The first winners will be chosen on Friday, October 22, 2021. The program culminates with a drawing for two recipients to each win a $5,000 scholarship during a Pelicans basketball game.

“As a former teacher, I understand the importance of honoring young men and women for their discipline in both their sport and the classroom,” said Leah Brown, Public Affairs Manager for Chevron.  “We’ve worked with the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation for years and have seen firsthand the tremendous positive influence the organization has on local youth. We know these student athletes will continue to make us proud as they prepare to take the next steps in their academic careers.”

“Since 2013, the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation has worked with Chevron in recognizing impressive high school scholar athletes in the Greater New Orleans area,” said Jay Cicero, President/CEO of the Foundation. “It is a cause we’re very proud to support, and we are looking forward to honoring two lucky scholar-athletes with a scholarship in 2022.”

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis until January 24, 2022, with two winners announced each week. All applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:
