Michael Ripa Selected as 2017 Recipient of Bob Mohr Memorial Scholarship
The Bob Mohr Baseball Scholarship Fund committee, in partnership with the Midlands Community Foundation (midlandscommunity.org), proudly announces Michael Ripa as this year’s recipient of the Bob Mohr Memorial Scholarship.
The Bob Mohr Baseball Scholarship Fund was established at Midlands Community Foundation in 2016 after Bob passed away from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015. He and his family wanted to honor a Papillion-La Vista baseball player who “loves baseball, loves the Papillion-La Vista Monarchs and is a good citizen – the three things that describe Bob best.” The fund makes this scholarship available to students who are graduating seniors from Papillion-La Vista High School, current members of the Papillion-La Vista High School baseball team, and who show strong leadership along with exemplary team guidance and management.
The $1,500 Bob Mohr Memorial Scholarship was presented to Michael Ripa, a 2017 graduate of Papillion La-Vista High School, on Tuesday, June 27 at 3 p.m. at Fricke Baseball Field.
