The Frank Menschner Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Guardian Sports board member and fixture in the Philadelphia lacrosse community Frank W. Meschner. The scholarships will give aspiring lacrosse goalies the opportunity to compete at the Guardian National Championships and gain valuable exposure in front of Division I, II and III college coaches.
