Two locals receive Paddy Damschen Scholarship
Dillon Ecord and Kayla Cummings of Helena each recently received awards from the Paddy Damschen Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Each recipient will receive a $1,000 scholarship towards tuition at their school of choice.
Ecord is a recent graduate of Capital High School and a standout football and track athlete. He was the AA co-MVP and state and all-conference linebacker for the Bruins. Ecord also excelled on the field in the javelin, participating at the class AA state track meet. He has been an inspiration to his teammates and was voted as a team captain for both the football and track teams this year. Ecord will be attending Montana State University in the fall.
Cummings is a recent graduate and valedictorian of Helena High School and a standout volleyball and track athlete. Cummings was a member of the last two state championship volleyball teams at HHS and recently competed in the state AA track meet, placing 10th in the javelin. Kayla has shown great discipline and drive in her high school years, not only achieving on the court and the field, but also in the classroom and in the community. She will be attending the University of Mary in Bismark, N.D., in the fall.
Ryan Damschen, head of the PDM Scholarship Fund said, “We are so thrilled with the caliber of student-athletes that applied for the scholarship in this our inaugural year. It is such a tribute to our mother that these quality young adults spent the time and effort to produce outstanding applications for the scholarship. We are honored to be able to help these kids out in their college aspirations.”
Paddy Damschen, who died on March 8, 2011, was one of Helena’s greatest fans of high school athletics, especially track and field. An athlete and community-minded woman, Damschen believed that any young person could achieve their dreams and goals with the support of their family, friends and community. Her family began the Paddy Damschen Memorial Scholarship Fund in 2011 for the purpose of providing scholarships to high school seniors who have competed in high school track and field, have exhibited a commitment to their athletics, academics and community, and are entering their first year of higher education at an accredited school in Montana.
