AltaOne Honoring Scholar Athletes

Thursday Event Honors BUHS Student Athletes

The AltaOne Federal Credit Union, Bishop member service center is hosting a Scholar Athlete Awards Ceremony.  The Thursday evening event marks the completion of the first year of the AltaOne Scholar Athlete Award program.  KIBS/KBOV radio is partnering with AltaOne and Bishop Union High School in honoring top student athletes.

Coaches at Bishop Union High School were asked to nominate one athlete from every sports team for the award, based on their academic performance and team leadership. Each of the students were also asked to write an essay on their future aspirations. A shortlist for each season was selected by an independent judging panel.

Winners of the Scholar Athlete Award will be announced at the award ceremony Thursday, June 11. The ceremony will begin at 6pm in the AltaOne member service center, Bishop. Each of the 3 season winners will receive a $500 scholarship check, with an overall winner out of the 3 receiving an additional $1,000 scholarship.
