Trio of scholar/athletes set a high bar
The Newaygo Athletic Boosters are pleased to announce that they have awarded three $500.00 Scholarships for 2022. The awards go to Emmerson Goodin, Jaxi Long and Lily Swinehart. These three athletes are National Honors Society members two years running, and have accumulated a wide range of accolades for their accomplishments both in athletics and scholastics. They are academic All State honorees and have supported and volunteered for a variety of summer youth camps covering a wide range of athletics including, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, and Softball. They exemplify what a scholar-athlete is and does. They have set the bar high for those that come after them!
In their applications, all three reflected on how important their athletic pursuits have been to them in meeting new people and establishing lifelong friendships. They talked about how their attitudes shifted from doing well and winning to that of savoring the journey and friends along the way. They exemplify what it means to carry “Lion Pride”
Emmerson will be attending Muskegon Community College pursing a degree in Exercise Science. Jaxi will be attending Cornerstone University. Lily will be attending the University of Michigan, pursuing a degree in Pediatric Health.
Congratulations and well done!
