The Paul Antonich Scholarship Fund honors Paul’s spirit by providing a scholarship to a Duluth Public Schools high school senior boy on the track and/or cross-country team.
The recipient must be a student who encourages others, demonstrates dedication and good citizenship, and promotes team unity. Successful candidates also must show respect and dignity toward others.
The fund was created in 1997 by Larry and Mary Antonich of Two Harbors in memory of their 17-year-old son, Paul. He died tragically in August 1996 shortly before he was to start his senior year at Duluth Central High School, where he was a member of the cross country and track teams.
