Congratulations to 2021 Scholarship Recipient:
Every year the Fort Myers Track Club awards one or more deserving high school seniors a scholarship. It was named the FMTC Billy Shevach Scholarship in memory of Billy and the generosity of the Shevach family. Each recipient is a member of the Fort Myers Track Club and met the scholarship requirements for volunteerism and participation with the track club.
2020-21 presented its fair share challenges, but Iris saw these challenges as opportunities to prepare for whatever the future brings.
During spring break of 2020 most people started quarantine, Iris began working more hours at my part-time job at a bakery. Balancing work, school, gym workouts and cross-country practice became routine over the summer before refocusing on school as part of the International Baccalaureate program at Fort Myers High School.
“Iris earned a varsity letter, well respected among the girls and boys on the team and was chosen to be one of the team captains. For the team, Iris served as information specialist (team communications) and organized practices. She represents the best qualities, dedication, confidence and humility.” – Yancy Palmer, Fort Myers High School (IB Mathematics, Cross-Country and Track & Field Coach)
“As the owner of Smallcakes, I have had the pleasure of being Iris’ boss and watching her grow over the last 2 years. Throughout the two years at Smallcakes, she has helped to train new employees, has taken on other responsibilities throughout our company as well as become an accomplished cake decorator. She has balanced her job, extra-curricular activities as well as a very difficult workload at school. She is an exceptional young lady with the potential to achieve anything” – Tonyia Moyer, Small Cakes Owner.
“Iris Frost is a full-time, diploma-seeking candidate in our International Baccalaureate program and has excelled in this rigorous and demanding curriculum as her 5.4 G.P.A. indicates. Iris’s academic performance has placed her in the top 1% of 6830 Lee County seniors. Iris is also an active member in National English Honor Society, Rho Kappa and Science National Honor Society. Since day one, I have been impressed with Iris Frost, and the more I speak with Iris with regards to her classwork and extracurricular activities, the more impressed I am at her motivation, independence, and leadership qualities.” – David Trepkowski, Fort Myers High School (IB High Level Biology Teacher)
Iris served as volunteer junior board member of the Fort Myers Track Club and it is bittersweet, but she will be leaving us to attend the University Florida this Fall. On behalf of the FMTC, and the Shevach family, we are delighted to award Iris Frost with FMTC Billy Shevach Memorial Scholarship.
It is not long before the racing season begins in SWFL. Starting in October we will be looking for volunteers to help with races and packet pick-up. You can find our race schedule and corresponding packet pick-up times linked to several places on this website. Please email us to volunteer email@example.com.
Sundays at 6am: Leaving from Starbucks @ the corner of Winkler & College.
Wednesdays, 6:30PM @ Bishop Verot track (warm-up @ 6:15PM)
Please look at the interactice Calendar. It contains as much up-to-date information as possible. If it is not on there, we either don't do it, don't have it ready, or it is way to far out there to think about right now.
