The Upper Arlington Education Foundation is pleased to announce a new scholarship in honor of Carl D. Smallwood ‘74. Many of the 1973-1976 UAHS Varsity soccer players experienced, for the first time in their lives, the impact diversity had on the success of a team. They were united with the goal of being the best team in the state and, more importantly, on and off the field they became a close-knit group of friends, many of whom have remained so for life.


The scholarship, seeded with generous gifts from Carl’s teammates, will promote a more inclusive community and will support players who, on the field and in the classroom, advance a sense of belonging and welcoming of diverse perspectives, backgrounds and talents. Each spring a senior member of the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams will each receive a $2,000 scholarship.


To learn more about Carl and/or to help build this scholarship fund, please contact Alice Finley, UA+Ed Executive Director, • 614-487-5007 ext. 1120 or visit THIS LINK to make a donation to this scholarship.
