Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer would like to congratulate Marlena Purcell and Allyson Holtz on being named 2018 Union League Scholars. Marlena and Allyson were two of 10 high school seniors honored at a banquet Thursday night at the Union League of Philadelphia. They were chosen after a rigorous application and interview process.
Marlena and Allyson were both eligible for the scholarship after receiving the Union League Good Citizen Award in 2017, which goes to 20 high school juniors associated with Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer who exemplify qualities of cooperative effort, self-control, perseverance, serious scholarship and good sportsmanship.
Marlena, ranked number one in her class at Minersville Area High School, plays club soccer for FC Revolution and will compete in the upcoming Under-19 Eastern Pennsylvania State Cup with Fury Lite. She plans to study aerospace engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Allyson is a three-sport athlete at Math, Science and Technology Community Charter School in Philadelphia, competing in soccer, basketball and softball. She will play soccer and basketball at Penn State University Abington. Allyson currently plays for Parkwood Youth Organization Panthers.
Congratulations once again and best of luck in the future!
