Larry McGrath Scholarship
The Silver Stick Scholarship conceived by one of our most devoted worker/promoters and a Past Commissioner of the Association the late Richard (Dick) McGrath of Port Huron, Michigan. Dick and his son Larry could almost always be found together at the arena. Larry often remarked that it would be fitting for the Silver Stick Organization to provide a scholarship award for deserving hockey players.
In 1970, Larry McGrath met with a fatal accident while at work. In lieu of flowers, Dick and his wife requested that donations be made to the International Silver Stick Association. That was the beginning of the sholarship funding program that today bears Larry's name.
Applications are reviewed and recommendations are made by the Scholarship Committee each spring and then approved and announced at the International Silver Stick Annual Meeting in June each year.
Additional information and applications are available through International, Regional and Local Tournament Directors.
