Being an athlete and a scholar is an extraordinary and difficult thing to do. My experiences and adversity made me the person I am today. That is why athletes are some of the best professionals in the world, because they usually understand hard work, dedication, and perseverance. This led me to want to give back to this population, because I felt that something so extraordinary was also so very much overlooked.
This scholarship is designed for the student that performs well academically, even while participating in extracurricular activities. When students are athletes they are not compensated financially or even with a grade. However, they are still expected to perform the same academically. This is an opportunity to gain financial support to continue your education and success.
