One Nevada Credit Union Awards $20,000 in Scholarships to NEvada Student Athletes

LAS VEGAS, NV (June 19, 2020) — Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) and One Nevada Credit Union awarded $20,000 in scholarship funds to Nevada student-athletes for the NIAA / One Nevada Top Ten Student-Athletes of the Year Awards.

The student-athletes of the year awards are presented to the top students who excel in sports, maintain a high academic status, and volunteer in their community. The annual northern Nevada and southern Nevada awards banquets have been canceled to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but the winners will still be presented with a $1,000 scholarship and special commemorative program at special presentations throughout the state later this month.

“The spirit of the Silver State is embodied in high school athletics and activities,” Bart Thompson, Executive Director of the NIAA said. “The Top Ten winners we honored this year have achieved and maintained an exceptionally high level of excellence in all aspects of their lives. These will be our future leaders. They were dealt a horrible blow at the conclusion of their high school career. They have risen up and they move forward. They will continue to make a positive difference in our communities.”

“We’re proud to celebrate these student-athletes for their outstanding achievements,” said Paul Parrish, One Nevada President and CEO. “It’s profoundly unfortunate that many student-athletes missed out on their last sports season. Still, we’re inspired by their perseverance to continue being outstanding students while giving back to their communities. That’s why we’re so pleased to award each of them a college scholarship in support of their education journey.”
