committee, and will be expected to participate in a minimum number of board meetings as well as fundraising events over the course of a two year term.
Students will apply in their junior year, and sit on the board for both their junior and senior years. Four students from the junior class will be chosen each year. During their time with us, these student athletes will act as a liaison between the board and the athletics teams at Case High School, providing input and ideas from their peers.

Student athletes chosen to be part of The Friends of the Cardinals will be expected to conduct themselves in accordance with MIAA standards as well as school conduct policies.
Upon graduation, these student athletes will be required to provide the Friends of the Cardinals with a college tuition bill, at which time they will receive their $500 scholarship. Scholarships will be awarded during the class night ceremonies.
