PaceSetters Scholarship Program

Each year we award four $500 scholarships and one $500 Mark Werner Scholarship to high school seniors involved in track or cross country. Mark was a member of PaceSetters for many years and was a 1975 graduate of Appleton East.

We start accepting submissions on January 1st each year through April 30th.
Stay tuned for our scholarship program next year!
