Mid New Jersey Youth Soccer Association Liesel Krehan Memorial Scholarship

In memory of the many contributions to youth soccer programs and particularly her many years of
dedicated service to the Mid New Jersey Youth Soccer Association, the MNJYSA Board of Directors has
created two $1,000.00 scholarships in honor of Liesel Krehan. The scholarships will be awarded annually
and paid to a male and female candidate.

A seasoned MNJYSA board member and dedicated follower of the sport, Liesel Krehan epitomized the
spirit of youth soccer and volunteerism in New Jersey. Born in Germany in 1923, she was sent by her
parents to live in England during WWII, where she met her husband, John, who served in the free
Czechoslovakian forces in England. Though Liesel is no longer with us, her legacy lives on through the
many initiatives she created in her tenure with MNJYSA. The scholarship is intended to honor her
memory as well as reward the MNJYSA athletes who meet the following qualifications.
