The Lancaster County Golf Association Board of Directors is pleased to award its 2016-17 scholarship to Elizabethtown senior golfer RJ Smith. LANCO presents their scholarship annually to a local high school senior golfer (male or female). The award is based on the following criteria: evidence of the values of golf, improvement over the high school years, golfing excellence, academic performance, and community involvement.

After graduation, RJ will be attending the University of Pittsburgh in Oakland, PA to continue his education. He is planning on working towards a PhD in Physical Therapy. While at Elizabethtown, RJ has been a member of the National Honor Society, tennis team, and golf team where he was able to display his strong leadership skills this past season.

It was his community involvement where RJ was most able to distinguish himself. He has been active in the Science Club, Penn State Mini-Thon, and the Children’s Miracle Network. The Children’s Miracle Network is where RJ has focused the majority of his volunteer time helping in numerous areas like the CMN Ball and Motorama held at the Farm Show Arena.

The LANCO Golf Association is proud to annually offer this scholarship to our local high school scholar athletes. LANCO has presented this award since 2010 and past winners include Peter Chieppor, Haley Goodling, Andy Butler, Jonathan Sauder, JD Dornes, and Christopher Fieger Jr.
