ARIZONA - PCA-Arizona announced its 2019 Triple-Impact Competitor® Scholarship recipients sponsored by Sagicor Life. Each of the recipients will be rewarded a $1000 college scholarship for exemplifying what it means to be a Triple-Impact Competitor® as a High School Student-Athlete. A Triple-Impact Competitor® is someone who is focused on Personal Mastery (making themselves better), Leadership (Making their teammates better), and Honoring the Game (Making the game better by showing respect for rules, opponents, and officials in addition to their teammates and themselves).
“We are incredibly grateful to Sagicor Life for fully underwriting the scholarships we will present at our awards ceremony in the Summer of 2018,” said PCA‐Arizona Executive Director Rich Tomey. “Sagicor Life’s generosity will greatly assist the student‐athletes we honor, including some who will be the first in their family to attend college. Sagicor Life’s support also elevates the human spirit through sports and character‐education by helping us raise the profile of so many young people doing things the right way.”
Bart Catmull, President of the Sagicor Life Insurance Company shares this statement about their partnership with PCA-Arizona, “Student‐athletes who participate in high school sports gain the opportunity to learn important lessons that benefit them not only on the playing field, but in every aspect of their lives. We are proud to join PCA‐Arizona and recognize student‐athletes who embody the principles of a Triple‐Impact Competitor committed to making themselves better, their teammates better and the game better.”
