In remembrance of former MCC-Maple Woods student, athlete and national hero Matt Mason, a scholarship has been established through the MCC Foundation to be awarded to future baseball players who exhibit the Navy SEAL’s values and passion for the game.
To fund the scholarship, the MCC-Maple Woods Bookstore will be selling memorial dog tags with Matt Mason’s Jersey number and military emblem for $15. The tags are available at all other campus bookstores as well. All proceeds from the sales will benefit the Matt Mason Scholarship Fund.
Additionally, dog tags will be available for purchase at the Matt Mason Tribute Ceremony at 12:30 p.m. April 15 on the Maple Woods baseball field. At this time, a permanent banner will be unfurled and Matt’s jersey number will be retired.
