Bremerton, WA, May 9, 2017 – Student-athletes at Bremerton High School will enjoy a competitive edge thanks to a $1,000 California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant. Bremerton High is one of 79 public schools in 33 states receiving a total of $83,000. The funds will be used for their football program.
The grant is named after California Casualty Chairman Emeritus Thomas R. Brown, who is a champion of helping more student-athletes learn valuable lessons of teamwork and confidence. Since its creation five years ago, more than $580,000 has been awarded to 500 athletic programs across the nation.
“California Casualty has been supporting educators for more than 65 years, and we understand the correlation between participation in sports and higher performance in the classroom,” said Doug Goldberg, Senior Vice President. Statistics show that student-athletes have higher test scores and are much more likely to attend college.
Public middle and high schools in WA with a need for their sports programs can get a leg-up on the competition for the 2017/2018 California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grants; applications are now being taken at www.calcasathleticsgrant.com. The deadline for consideration is January 15, 2018.
