The Wesley John Arbaugh Martin Memorial Lacrosse Scholarship was presented on May 31 at Manchester Valley High School.

Wesley could have graduated this year, alongside the scholarship recipients, but tragically lost his life in a car accident on July 7, 2017. His family said in an email that the scholarship was started to keep his memory alive and to support his passion for lacrosse.

Wesley’s classmates and friends who each received $1,000 scholarships were Abigail Ziegenfuse, Jason Frazier (Wesley's best friend), Justin Greenwell, Jacob Lankford (first on the accident scene), Owen McCallum and Joseph Poore.

The next scholarship fundraiser will be held early next year at River Valley Ranch.
