Milwaukee-based Cousins Subs® honored four high school seniors with $14,000 in scholarships as part of its second annual Wisconsin Sports Awards Scholarship Contest (WSASC). Trey Horbinski of Necedah is the runner-up of the two male finalists, receiving a $2,000 scholarship.
Trey Horbinski played basketball and participated in track and field throughout his entire high school career, adding cross-country into the mix during his junior and senior year. He has earned multiple varsity letters and distinctions, set numerous school records and served as varsity captain for all three sports. He has been actively involved in 4-H and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, as well as coaching youth basketball teams and officiating at local tournaments.
While working and participating in athletics, Trey maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA throughout his four years at Necedah High School. He will attend the Milwaukee School of Engineering this fall in pursuit of a degree in civil engineering.
“It is a true honor to have been selected by Cousins Subs to receive this scholarship,” said Trey. “The entire evening at the Wisconsin Sports Awards was an amazing experience full of lifelong memories I will never forget. Thank you to Cousins Subs for providing me with this outstanding start to my college career, and for recognizing student athletes from around the state.”
Cousins Subs also awarded two $5,000 grand prize scholarships to Adam Vechart of Menomonee Falls and Cecilia “CeAnna” Soper of Hartland, as well as another $2,000 scholarship prize to Audrey Adler of Oconomowoc. The winners were honored at the GKB Events Wisconsin Sports Awards on Thursday, April 24th at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE).
The scholarships were funded through Cousins Subs’ Make It Better Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization established by Cousins Subs in 2013. The Make It Better Foundation addresses three areas of interest that are vital to any community: health and wellness, hunger and youth education.
“Cousins Subs strongly believes in serving and giving back to the communities where we operate,” said Justin McCoy, vice president of marketing at Cousins Subs. “Health, wellness and youth education are the pillars of our foundation, and all of this year’s WSASC recipients excel in these areas.”
More than 800 applications were received from high school senior athletes throughout the state of Wisconsin.
“We’re pleased with the growing level of interest in our scholarship contest and we’re more than impressed by the collective achievements of this year’s applicants,” McCoy continued. “The most difficult job has proven to be identifying the four finalists from all of the inspiring young people who apply.”
