Banneker City College Scholarship


Banneker City is proud to announce its first annual college scholarship! This scholarship will be available annually to high school seniors—former players and volunteers—who are college bound, have volunteered with Banneker City, and have at least a 3.0 GPA.

The scholarship derives its namesake from the inaugural winner: 
Sameer Glazerman.

Sameer Glazerman is an honor-roll high school senior with deep roots in Banneker City Little League. Sameer joined Banneker City in our inception year as a 4-year old player in our Tee-Ball division. He subsequently played in every division, every semester, until he graduated out of the program at age 15. He then returned to be a volunteer umpire for the league, and has volunteered over 100 hours as a volunteer umpire, all while handling the rigors of high school academia and preparing for college. Sameer is an outstanding young man, and continues to model upright conduct for the kids, and adults at every game he umpires. Sameer is a rare, special kind of volunteer that is hard to describe in words: he’s giving back to the same program that gave to him. How many get to close that loop in a lifetime? And he’s just getting started. Sameer is considering a career in Physical Therapy, and currently Northeastern University is at the top of his list. We wish him the best and success in his future endeavors, and cherish him as one of our own that we love and esteem. Congratulations, Sameer! Keep up the outstanding work!

Thank you to everyone that came out to Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse to celebrate Sameers' accomplishments.
