Bucks Reward Milwaukee Public High School Scholar Athletes with Courtside Seats
Courtside Active Scholars Program recognizes MPS Students who excel in school and sports
The Bucks are continuing their outreach in the community by recognizing and rewarding the hard work of the next generation of the city’s leaders. The Milwaukee Bucks Courtside Active Scholars Program identifies Milwaukee Public Schools high school students who excel academically and have high attendance rates while demonstrating a commitment to athletics and fitness.
Two students per month – one male and one female – will earn two courtside seats each courtesy of the Bucks owners, based on eligibility and the merit of his or her application. Amanda MacArthur, a senior at MacDowell Montessori School, and Deandre Hill Stanton, a junior at Rufus King International High School, will be in attendance at tonight’s game vs. the Sacramento Kings.
To be eligible for the Courtside Active Scholars Program, MPS high school students need to have at least 90 percent attendance during the most recent mark period, meet a minimum 3.0 GPA and be in their second year of participation in an interscholastic sport, intramural sport or other type of activity that promotes physical fitness. In order to be selected, they must complete a recognition application that involves a two-paragraph essay about why sports and physical fitness is important to them. The winners are selected by a committee consisting of Bucks Co-Owners Wes Edens, Marc Lasry and Jamie Dinan, President Peter Feigin, EVP of Social Responsibility-Community Affairs John Steinmiller, MPS Executive Director of Community Engagement Denise Callaway, and MPS Athletic Director Bill Molbeck.
