Matt Kern - Perseverance Pays Off

May 13, 2004 02:45 PM

Matt KernMatt Kern is a senior at Howard High School of Technology, where there is no tennis team. He works at MBNA as a paid intern part time and plays tennis whenever he can. He has only been playing since 2000, but caught the eye of Laura Travis, Men’s and Women’s Tennis Coach at the University of Delaware. Laura encouraged Matt to apply for a USTA scholarship. He received a scholarship for $6000 over four years and will attend the University of Delaware in the fall, majoring in Management of Information Systems. He will have the opportunity to make the tennis team as a walk-on.

Congratulations, Matt, on a job well done!
