Patrick Quinn, a senior at Nazareth Academy, has earned a full-ride Chick Evans college scholarship.
The Chick Evans Scholarship is a full tuition and housing college scholarship for golf caddies that is renewable for up to four years. Recipients must display a strong caddie record, excellent grades and outstanding character.
Patrick has been a caddie at Chicago Highlands Country Club in Westchester for the past five years.
“Caddying has taught me to value hard work, persistence and the need to always give 100 percent of my effort,” Patrick said.
The Westchester teen plans to use the scholarship to study chemistry at Marquette University.
The scholarship will be formally presented during the Senior Awards Assembly on May 23, by Tim McVady of the Western Golf Association Evans Scholars Foundation.
Patrick is appreciative of this honor. “I am very excited and proud to be an Evans Scholar. It is the opportunity of a lifetime and I hope to make the most of it,” he said.
The Evans Scholars Foundation offers this award to approximately 200 scholars each year, granting tuition and housing at the nation’s finest universities. Since 1930, more than 10,000 outstanding students have been awarded Evans Scholarships.
Most attend one of the fourteen universities where the Evans Scholars Foundation owns and operates a Scholarship House. At those houses, students live and work together cooperatively.
