Youth hockey players receive scholarships

DETROIT – Ilitch Charities, the charitable arm of the Ilitch companies, awarded $20,000 in scholarships today to eight student athletes from the Little Caesars AAA hockey program and the Little Caesars Amateur Hockey League (LCAHL).

The students were honored at a ceremony at Hockeytown Cafe in Detroit, which was emceed by Ken Daniels, the Red Wings' television play-by-play announcer on Fox Sports Net.

Ilitch Charities Chairman Christopher Ilitch presented the scholarships to the following honorees:

Stephen Barnett of Bloomfield Hills, Mich.
Chelsie Boroski of Sterling Heights, Mich.
Ryan Brown of St. Johns, Mich.
Jillayne DeBus of Howell, Mich.
Andrea Kot of Goodrich, Mich.
Brandon Lubin of Commerce Township, Mich.

“Little Caesars youth hockey players represent some of the best young hockey talent in the country,” said Ilitch, who is also president and CEO of Ilitch Holdings, Inc. “These young people are not only talented athletes, but outstanding students. Ilitch Charities is pleased to provide college scholarships to help these rising stars attain their educational goals.”

Each year, Ilitch Charities honors outstanding Little Caesars hockey players with a scholarship toward the college or university of their choice. To qualify, students must maintain at least a 3.0 high school grade-point average, be a current member of a Little Caesars AAA or LCAHL team and have plans to attend a college or university within the next two years.

The Little Caesars AAA hockey program and the Little Caesars Amateur Hockey League are two of the country’s most respected youth hockey programs. Nearly 15,000 male and female athletes across the Midwest participate. Thousands of players have moved on to play collegiate hockey and more than 100 have played in the National Hockey League.

Michael and Marian Ilitch began supporting youth hockey in the 1960s, shortly after they founded Little Caesars Pizza.
