Western Kentucky University offered a full tuition scholarship at their WKU event this past weekend.  The scholarship with a value upwards of  $70,000 was won by Trinity High School Junior John Marscik.  John posted a perfect 5 - 0 score in the High School section of the event to win the scholarship.

This wonderful performance has earned John his college paid for 4 years.  All now he needs to do is maintain his grades in school and participate in the WKU club and team.

John is a regular at the Monday night tournaments and has played chess since elementary school.  This is exciting news for young chess players.  They can turn their love of the game into a conduit to higher education.
