Matamoras Rod & Gun Club
2015 Scholarship Winner Past Scholarship Winners
President Keith Rasor - Steven Gosch - Secretary Anita Richards
The Matamoras Rod & Gun Club has a long history of supporting the youth of our community. In 2007, the Club established a scholarship to assist a worthy student in fulfilling their education plans. Seniors attending the Delaware Valley School District are encouraged to visit the School's guidance counselor to obtain an application.
The Scholarship is awarded at the pleasure of the Club's Scholarship Committee. The Committee favors students who intend to major in Conservation related subjects such as Environmental Services, Forestry, Parks and Recreation and Environmental Law. The Committee also likes to see that the student has been involved in outdoors programs such as the Pike County Conservation School, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and similar programs. Hobbies such as hunting, fishing, and trapping or membership in sporting clubs is also advantageous.
In addition to the standard Delaware Valley School District application, the applicants will be required to submit three written statements:
1. Share with the committee your interests and hobbies as they relate to the outdoors, conservation and the environment.
2. What are your career interests and goals?
3. Tell us why you think conservation is so critical to wildlife and the environment.

The Matamoras Rod & Gun Gun Club is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2015 Scholarships: Steven Gosch and Quinn Decker.
Steven is the son of Daniel and Krista of Shohola, PA. His outdoor hobbies of kayaking, hiking, canoeing and camping have influenced his goal of majoring in environmental science and marine and aquatic science. Steven is quoted as saying, My main goal is to have a career at either a zoo or aquarium. Being a people person, I am striving to have a career as an educator to the public, describing facts about animals and aquatic life. Steven will be attending Albright College in Reading, PA.
Quinn Decker is the son of Joe and Stefanie of Shohola, PA. He has enjoyed hunting and fishing with his father and feels at home in the outdoors. He hopes to pursue a dual major in aerospace engineering and business. Quinn is quoted as saying, I have always been a natural when it comes to math and science.

We congratulate both Steven and Quinn and wish them well as they begin their university studies in the fall.
