Juneau Trail &Road Runners presented Juneau-Douglas High School senior Tim McKenna and home-school senior Madison York with a $750 scholarship Wednesday during the JDHS Scholarship Night.

The scholarship is open to all high school seniors who have participated in track and field or cross country running. JTRR President John Kern said McKenna and York have made running part of their daily lifestyle.

“Both of them are avid runners who run outside of any organized program, they do it as part of their daily life routine,” Kern said. “I think that’s what really stands out with those who end up winning the scholarship.”

Kern said about six individuals applied for the award, which requires applicants to submit an essay on what running has meant to them.
