Athletes have the tenacity, perseverance and persistence to succeed on the court, field and even in the classroom. I want to raise money so that these athletes who were injured while participating in their sport has the opportunity to put these talents to work in an academic setting. So many past scholarship recipients have become successful in a vast array of fields including business, music and medical. I consider myself blessed for being a recipient as well and have made the most of the opportunity. Now I look forward to giving back in any way possible.
