The GMAA will award two scholarships of $1,000 each to graduating seniors to help fund their college careers. The two winners were chosen among many applicants, and were determined based on their academic achievements, community and school involvement, and their love of the sport of running.
The scholarship winners are:
Ella Bohmann of CVU – Ella participated in four sports in her high school career, but was most active in running. She will attend Tulane University in the fall and will major in Communications with a minor in English. After graduation she pictures herself working for a magazine or publishing company in the areas of heath or athletics. Some of her most memorable experiences in her running career have been the camaraderie and friendships she’s made with her teammates. Ella and her family have been GMAA members for many years.
Luna Hall of Mount Mansfield Union High School – Luna exceled in cross-country, gymnastics, and track and field all 4 of year high school years, and also raced for the GMAA in regional junior races, and will continue running for the University of Vermont this fall. At UVM Luna will study biology and zoology on the pre-veterinary program and would like to focus on wildlife preservation and animal behavior, with the ultimate goal of becoming a wildlife veterinarian and do research on endangered species. Luna enjoys volunteering at sporting events because she used to look up to those who volunteered their time when she was younger.
Congratulations, Ella and Luna!
