Downingtown HS Senior Gets USTA Scholarship

Justin Landis of Downingtown was honored this summer with the prestigious USTA Tennis and Education Foundation's College Education Scholarship. 

In June ceremonies, the USTA and Mass Mutual Financial group presented Landis with a $5 thousand dollar scholarship.  Landis was selected from a pool of hundreds of USTA scholarship applicants nationwide.

The Downingtown West HS Varsity tennis captain has been playing tennis since he was 10 years old.  He taught tennis as a HS graduation project and enjoyed it so much he continued teaching in the Downingtown area full time.

In addition to being an accomplished tennis player, Landis was a member of the Honor Society, Spanish Club, Creative Writing Club, and Indoor Track team.

The USTA Tennis and Education Foundation College Education scholarship is awarded each year to students who excel both academically and on the tennis court.

Landis will be attending Temple University in the fall and will compete on the Temple Owl tennis team.

Good luck and Congratulations!
