The application window is now open for the Mark "Worky" Workman Character and Perseverance Scholarship Award. The Foundation announced the start of the award at the annual Herb Brooks Celebrity Golf Classic last August.
Mark Workman ("Worky"), age 47, of Apple Valley, MN passed away February 14, 2018 after a short and courageous battle with cancer. Workman was a passionate hockey man that dedicated his life to the game. In addition to his involvement at the amateur, collegiate, and professional levels, he gave much of his time to youth hockey and to the growth and development of our game. He was proud to represent USA Hockey through his volunteer work at their spring and summer development camps. He loved working with young hockey players, and he cared deeply about their growth and personal development on and off the ice.
Workman grew up in Stillwater, Minnesota. He played collegiate hockey at St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota and then stayed on to coach the team after graduation. He went on to also coach at Brown University and Robert Morris University. Workman made his dreams come true in the fall of 2016 by becoming an amateur scout for the Vegas Golden Knights.
This scholarship is awarded to high school or college age students who are actively involved with hockey. They have overcome hardship and persevered though adversity to overcome their obstacles and are looking to continue their higher education or training.
