The Doug Sibley Memorial Scholarship 1 Mile and 5K Fun Run raises funds for the Doug Sibley Memorial Scholarship.  This scholarship is presented each year to one Paul Pewitt High School senior male athlete who exhibits the qualities that former Pewitt coach Doug Sibley would have looked for and expected from his athletes.  These qualities include hard work, dedication, desire, leadership, and a never-quit attitude.  Several former scholarship recipients have been able to further their education beyond high school with the help of the Doug Sibley Memorial Scholarship.
