A top high school athlete will get some help with college through a scholarship established to honor the memory of a man who himself was an avid amateur athlete.

The Rob Henn Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a senior Huntington North High School athlete "with unquestionable character," according to the scholarship guidelines.

The athlete must also have a high regard for teammates and a respect for opponents.

While scholastic achievement and financial need will be considered, they will not be major factors in the awarding of the scholarship.
