MHS seniors Sergio Rodriguez and Adam Adaska have earned the prestigious Chick Evans Scholarship for golf caddies that covers tuition and housing for all four years. Both will be attending the University of Illinois-Chicago next year.

The Evans Scholars Foundation awards full tuition and housing scholarships to high-achieving caddies with limited financial means. Evans Scholars are selected on the basis of a strong caddie record, excellent grades, outstanding character and demonstrated financial need.

“Sergio has impressed me with his academic abilities, leadership skills, and commitment to helping others succeed,” MHS teacher Nicole Malham wrote in her nomination letter. “Sergio displays a high level of maturity and responsibility. He takes initiative in volunteering his free time to tutor younger AVID students. Sergio is always polite, respectful, and engaged in the classroom. He is a strong role model for his peers.”

Adam plans on studying business with an emphasis on marketing at UIC.

“We are so proud of him,” said his mother, Marni Weier. “His hard work and determination to receive this honor is amazing.”

Established in 1930 by the Western Golf Association and celebrated amateur golfer Charles “Chick” Evans, Jr., the Foundation administers the nation’s largest scholarship program for caddies.
