On behalf of the IES HS Scholarship Committee, we are excited to announce the 2020 IES HS Scholarship Recipients:
Congratulations to Riana Scott (UN) of La Grande, OR, and Alec Bazaldua (YYST) of Zillah, WA!!
Upon learning of their selection, Riana and Alec had the following to share:
"I am so excited and thankful to be selected as the 2020 female athlete scholarship recipient! In the fall, I will be attending and swimming at the University of Nebraska, Omaha where I will be studying to become an Occupational Therapist. I am very grateful that I will be able to use this money to assist me with tuition. I have truly enjoyed my opportunity to serve as the IES Senior Athlete Rep this past year, and I am looking forward to continuing as a voice for IES Athletes in my new role as IES At-Large Athlete Rep."
"My plan is to swim at Arizona Christian University in Glendale, Arizona and make the most of the opportunity I have been offered. My goal is to compete in the NAIA National Championships as a freestyle/butterfly sprinter. I also want to spread the joy of swimming and competing by coaching swim in the Yakima Valley whenever I have a chance during my college years and help youth in the area gain self-confidence as well as set and meet personal goals and overcome challenges."
Congratulations once again to these outstanding IES athletes - we are proud of you!!
