About the Scholarship

The friends of Highland Park Alumnus Fred Vehon, HPHS Class of 1985, have created the Biggest Heart Scholarship in his memory to celebrate a graduating senior football player who, like Fred, is a role model for the entire team. This scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating senior football player who exhibits commitment to the team and his fellow athletes. This is not a scholarship for the star of the team, but instead celebrates the person who has the biggest, positive influence on the entire squad.
