Stephanie & Mya Thompson Memorial Scholarship

The Stephanie & Mya Thompson Memorial Scholarship offers renewable scholarships on a season-to-season basis for families and athletes with demonstrated financial need who display a willingness and desire to join the Boilermaker Aquatics community through practice attendance and volunteer support.

Scholarship awards cover, in part or in whole, regular practice dues for the current season. Additionally, Scholarship recipients are eligible for a USA Swimming Outreach membership and additional benefits through Indiana Swimming.

Forever in our Hearts, Always on Our Team

The Stephanie & Mya Thompson memorial scholarship is named to honor the memories of this mother and daughter pair who exemplified what it means to be a long-term member of our team and our community.

For more than a decade, Mya and Stephanie, along with the rest of the Thompson family, were active members of our team and community. Mya grew her skills and leadership through regular practice attendance and a positive attitude. She was most recently a member of our Senior Black roster group, traveling from Monticello, IN to participate regularly in our highest-level 18&U training group as she prepared to compete at the 2022 Speedo Sectional Championships. Stephanie gave back to the club by training to become an official and volunteering to officiate regularly at both our BA-hosted home meets and meets we traveled to participate in. 

Their absence is missed greatly by our community, but their memory lives on through this fund to provide additional opportunity to committed athletes and remove financial barriers to the sport of swimming.
