Posted on 05/01/2019
With a surprise witnessed by his family and his classmates, Foot Locker announced Springfield Renaissance high school senior Ijahman Morgan was awarded a $20,000 scholarship as part of the Foot Locker Scholar Athletes Program that annually recognizes 20 students nationwide for exceptional leadership in the classroom and community, as well as for achievements in sports.

Recognized for his academic excellence and exemplifying strong leadership skills both in sports and within his community, Ijahman joined the Foot Locker Scholar Athletes class of 2019, selected from a highly competitive pool of over 13,000 applicants.

From the classroom to his community, and on the soccer field, Ijahman’s spirit soars high as he eyes a future in aerospace engineering and aviation. Inspired by science, he has excelled academically (3.8 GPA) being awarded the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists Award, has been a Triple-Impact Competitor and is the winner of the Presidential Award for Educational Excellence. As captain of his varsity soccer team, he finds time to give back by mentoring at Gold Star Soccer. The Foot Locker Scholar Athlete Scholarship will help propel Ijahman’s dreams of aviation certification and college education to land a job as an airline pilot.

This fall, Ijahman will begin his college education at Saint Louis University, in Missouri.
