The Steve Hornbeck Scholarship Fund is the Lee CTA general scholarship fund for youth programs.
Steve Hornbeck was a volunteer dad in the early years of the Lee CTA. When his cancer was first discovered, he took a leave of absence from work for treatment and spent the whole summer assisting with the travel team, mainly driving the kids everywhere. He had just remarried, and all 4 of the children in the combined families were in the lessons.
His children, Steve & Katie, have sent a $100 contribution annually since 2003, to the Steve Hornbeck Scholarship fund. Donations to this fund are solicited on the website via the printable Donation Form
or the Online Payment Form.
The Lee CTA deposits these donations into the general checking account and maintains a separate ledger for tracking accumulation and distribution. Typical uses include subsidizing all or part of an Lee CTA program fee for those youth whose families might find it difficult to pay. Also, youth participants in Lee CTA programs have been granted partial scholarships to the junior development programs at Berkshire West AC, extending their playing season to year-round.
In 2006, the family of long-time board member Arnie Katz donated $750 to this fund in honor of Arnie’s 80th birthday, and in 2011 another $100 for his 85th birthday.
