Blackhawk Alumni Scholar Selection Deadline and Scholarship Luncheon

2022 Magnuson Scholarships Deadline Extended

The Scholarship Selection Committee has decided to extend the deadline for applying for the 2022 Magnuson Scholarships until Friday, March 4, 2022. This is to accommodate any students who, through difficulties encountered with applying and tracking down coaches and faculty members for letters of recommendation, have been unable to meet the original deadline. So if you know anyone who might be a worthy candidate, please inform them that they still have time. 

Sadly, we regret to announce that once again we are forced to cancel the Scholarship Luncheon scheduled for March 7 in the UC Atrium. While as mentioned above, we will be awarding three new Scholarships for 2022, we regrettably have to abandon plans for this year's Luncheon because of protocols currently in place, and uncertainty about the state of the pandemic in early March. With the Current Team and Management Staff being prevented from attending by NHL League Protocols, the Luncheon would be significantly diminished from the first-class level that our Honorees, our Membership and their guests have come to expect. This decision was not taken lightly; but ultimately, we have to consider the safety and expectations of ALL of our traditional Sponsors and Attendees.

We certainly hope that this is the last time that Covid interferes with our ability to operate and fund the CBAA. While we will still have twelve students attending school, yet again one of our two main fund-raising events (the other being the Golf Outing) will not be providing any support in 2022. Having said that, if anyone would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the CBAA to help mitigate this loss of funding, it would certainly of assistance and appreciated. Please reach out to Luncheon Chairman Tom Dillon:   and he will be happy to assist you.

Again, thanks to all for your understanding and continued support of the CBAA during these uncertain times.We can't wait for a return to normalcy, and we will provide updates about future Membership Meetings as soon as we can get them nailed down.
