Ken Harman Scholarship

The Ken Harman Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to two deserving Joel Barlow High School Seniors who have played youth soccer in the towns of Easton or Redding and competed on the Boys or Girls Varsity Soccer Team at JBHS. The scholarship is given in memory of Ken Harman who played a pivotal role in the early years of developing youth soccer in Redding. Ken gave of himself in service to the youth as a coach, a manager and especially as a mentor. 

The Easton Redding United Soccer Club recognizes the commitment, perseverance and hard work that our student athletes go through on their journey to high school graduation. We are pleased to offer this annual monetary scholarship of $500 to two players who have exemplified qualities such as leadership, service to the community, and academic achievement accompanied with a desire to be a life-long learner. The scholarship is not designed to recognize the “best” soccer player or the longest varsity tenure.

The award will be presented at the JBHS Awards Ceremony in the Spring.
