Soaring Eagle Scholarship Announcement

Terrell Woods
FGC Soaring Eagle Scholarship
 
The Florida Gold Coast Board of Directors has created new Scholarship in response to the 2018 tragic school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida, which included one of our own - local swimmer Nicholas Dworet - as one of the victims. In keeping with Nick’s drive and determination to continue his swimming career collegiately, this scholarship is designed to encourage and support our FGC athletes who share that same drive and determination!
