At 2Words Character Development, we develop and enable students to become all-star leaders on and off the field.
When the Friday night lights shut off and students hang up their jerseys, we want them to be defined by their character, not by the points on the scoreboard. It’s crucial to be exposed to tools, practices, and foundational principles to build outstanding character.
The Letterman to Leadership Scholarship is an online tournament where graduating student athletes will each win a $1,000 scholarship towards their college of choice, and named the Texas Student Athlete of the Year, powered by 2Words Character Development.
We want to recognize and encourage the kind of young women and men that will become the next generation of leaders. With this scholarship, we hope to remove barriers to success.
Great leaders don’t boast about their influence and advantages, they use them to benefit others. This scholarship is for students who exemplify strong character, humility, and care for their community.
We’re looking for student athletes who…
- Use their influence to benefit others.
- Lift up and motivate others to recognize their strengths and become leaders themselves.
- Invest in improving their school and community.
- Aren’t afraid to admit their weaknesses and learn from their mistakes.
- Exemplify excellent dedication to their education and have a hunger for learning.
- Are graduating seniors at a UIL 2A-6A classification Texas high school.
