Fossil Ridge High School Senior Wins $20,000 Foot Locker Scholarship
Keller, TX – Foot Locker has awarded Fossil Ridge High School senior Vivian Nguyen one of 20 $20,000 Foot Locker Scholar Athlete scholarships because of her dedication to sports, academics, and above all, community service. The Foot Locker Scholar Athletes program, funded by Foot Locker and facilitated by DoSomething.org, honors 20 rising college freshman in the fall of 2014 who demonstrate academic excellence and show their strength of character and devotion to their sports, as well as their communities. More than 27,000 applications were received and only 20 students were selected to receive scholarships. Finalists were selected because they exhibited the following characteristics:
Good sportsmanship and strong moral character
Passion and commitment to empowering the community in which they live
Confidence and enthusiasm about being a leader
Promotion of diversity
Representatives from Foot Locker surprised Nguyen with the announcement during school on April 7. Flanked by the FRHS drum line, Foot Locker and Fossil Ridge counselors marched down the halls and into Nguyen’s classroom to announce that she had earned the scholarship.
