General Scholarship Fund
This fund provides six $1000 college scholarships to graduating senior athletes based on athletic performance, academic achievement, and leadership.
The Jack Gambill Scholarship
Two $1,000 Jack Gambill Scholarships are awarded each year — one each to a male and female senior athlete who participated in sports for four years and demonstrated leadership qualities. Jack Gambill was a George Mason football and baseball coach and GMHS athletic director from 1985 to 1994. His baseball teams went 252-70-2 from 1963 to 1985, winning or sharing 11 district titles, three regional titles and the Virginia AA state championship in 1980. This award is presented to the graduating seniors that will be remembered as the outstanding senior student-athletes in this class. The committee bases its decision on the outstanding athletic accomplishments and recognitions earned by these athletes as well as their overall contribution to the program’s and team’s success. Leadership qualities, character, and commitment to achieving athletic excellence are the deciding factors.
The Arnold Siegfried Memorial Scholarship
Two $1,000 Arnold Siegfried Memorial Scholarships are awarded each year — one each to a male and female senior athlete who has attained a GPA of 3.25 and displayed good athletic ability. Arnold Siegfried was GMHS athletic director from 1970 to 1985 as well as a boys' varsity basketball coach. This award is presented to the graduating seniors that exemplify the term student-athlete. The committee bases its decision on the outstanding academic record of a varsity athlete that also excels on the fields, or courts, service to the school and community, and participation in other activities.
The Al Krueger Scholarship
Two $1,000 Al Krueger Scholarships are awarded each year — one each to a male and female senior athlete in an individual performance sport (golf, cross country, swimming, wrestling, tennis, or track and field) who exhibited outstanding athletic achievement. Al Krueger taught at GMHS from 1970 to 1998 and was the boy’s varsity tennis coach for many years. His teams won seven state championships. The committee bases its decision on the display of good character, sportsmanship, competitive spirit and enthusiasm. The winners will have achieved excellence in an individual sport and demonstrated valuable leadership qualities on their teams.
These scholarships are administered by the George Mason High School Athletic Boosters Association (EIN #38-3658847), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and as such all contributions to these are tax-deductible as provided by Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.
