The Mid Penn Motion Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Joseph Lowe and Alexis Sherman are the 2016 MPM College Scholarship Award recipients. Joe and Alexis’ commitment to MPM basketball, as well as their exemplary achievements off the court, have earned them this distinguished honor.
Joe credits much of his personal success to his three years under MPM coach Steve Rollins. Joe explains, “I heard from a MPM basketball coach once that, basketball does not build character it reveals it. I agree with him and in my story, basketball has revealed to me my character and has made me a better person because of it. I can say that I would not be driven or successful in life unless it was for my AAU and high school basketball experience. “ Joe’s three older brothers also played for MPM so his decision where to play AAU basketball was an easy one.
Joe’s basketball accomplishments include being a two-time conference all-star, league MVP, 1256 point scorer, and district three point leader while playing at Covenant Christian Academy in the CAC Conference. Joe’s other activities include varsity soccer, drama, choir and church youth group participation. Joe has had an extensive record of community service during his high school years including a mission trip abroad. Joe will be studying business and marketing at James Madison University this fall.
Alexis was a committed 7 year veteran of Mid Penn Motion AAU. “The MPM College Scholarship is more than $1,000, it is a privilege and a blessing”, stated Alexis. She summed up her memorable years with MPM this way. “Your team is not only a team, but they are your family. Your teammates are not only teammates, they are sisters”.
A graduate of Chambersburg Area Senior HS, Alexis was an excellent student and actively involved in her high school. She was President of the Student Government, a member of the National Honor Society and National Spanish Honor Society. Preparing for a Political Science major at Kutztown University this fall, Alexis interned at the District Attorney’s office.
The Mid-Penn Motion family is very proud of both of our MPM College Scholarship recipients. Congratulations Joe and Alexis and best of luck!
