May 01, 2017

Kamiak High School’s Keaton Layman has been awarded one of 20 scholarships by the Major League Baseball Players Trust.

In honor of National Volunteer Week, Major League baseball players are recognizing high school student volunteers across the country with $2,000 college scholarships to celebrate their dedication to community service.

Layman is among 20 Action Team Captains nationally being recognized. All scholarship recipients are members of the Action Team® national youth volunteer program created and administered by the Major League Baseball Players Trust and Volunteers of America.

The scholarship awards are based on the volunteer activities, academic achievements and leadership skills of high school students serving as Action Team Captains. As Action Team Captains, each of the scholarship recipients take on the responsibility of planning and organizing Action Team-centric volunteer events in and around their schools, while encouraging others to get involved in their communities.

Each scholarship application was reviewed by a committee comprised of representatives of the Major League Baseball Players Trust and Volunteers of America, and included Major Leaguers Mark Melancon of the San Francisco Giants and Craig Stammen of the San Diego Padres.
