Carruth wins Mannino Scholarship

TRAVERSE CITY — Traverse City West's Alec Carruth is this year's recipient of the David Mannino College Scholarship that's associated with the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League Prep Hockey Showcase.

The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a student-athlete who participated in the 2013 Showcase and met all of the selection criteria.

Carruth, a 3.70 GPA student at Traverse City West High School, plans to attend Michigan State University and pursue a degree in computer engineering. Carruth volunteered on two community service missions (one to New York and one to Canada) and also volunteered his time to the Grand Traverse Hockey Association. He was nominated for the award by Traverse City West head coach Jeremy Rintala.
