The South Lyon Junior League is proud to announce that since the graduating class of 2013, and hopefully for years to come, we will select 4 annual winners for the “Ralph Dunigan Scholarship Award”.

This award is named after Ralph Dunigan, the current AND past president of the SLJL. Ralph has dedicated numerous hours and years to the SLJL and to Baseball and Softball at both schools. In Ralph’s thirteen years as a member of the SLJL he has shown the SLJL Board that when he say’s “IT IS FOR THE KIDS” he truly means it.

Ralph has been a part of helping develop the SLJL as well as the High School programs, to work together to make Baseball and Softball a more viable sport.

These $1000 Scholarship Award is given to a South Lyon High and South Lyon East Senior that participated in the SLJL and who represent their schools and the SLJL well at all times.

To qualify:

– Must have played one year in Rec/Travel ball or umpired three years in the SLJL

– Must be attending some form of higher education in the fall

To be considered, please complete the application form and write an essay of fewer than 300 words about a life lesson you learned by playing baseball or softball and a memory you have of the South Lyon Junior League.
