100% University Scholarships for Two College Tennis Stars
Monday, 16 June 2014
Edi Stoica (Year 13) and Rachel Swindell (2013 graduate) are ecstatic to each receive 100% Scholarships to American Universities to continue their studies. Each of these scholarships is worth in excess of US$35,000 a year for four years of study!
Edi and Rachel have both been stalwarts of our top achieving Premier Tennis teams. Edi has been a member of the Boys’ Premier Tennis Team that has won the National title for the past three years in a row. Rachel, who graduated last year, played for the Premier Girls’ Tennis team in 2013. The girls’ team has won the National title an incredible five years in row!
Both Edi and Rachel have had every opportunity to play top level tennis at College and this has gone on to pay dividends. Both students have been awarded fully funded university scholarships split between their academic studies, tennis representation and living expenses.
Rachel will be attending Eastern Washington University in Spokane in the west coast state of Washington. This is a NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Division 1 University. Rachel will be studying Sport Science, majoring in Chemistry whilst also playing top level tennis.
Edi is very fortunate to have secured his scholarship whilst still at College and will be attending Witchita State University about 45 minutes from Kansas City. This is another NCAA Division 1 University. Edi will be majoring in International Business whilst also pursuing top level tennis play.
Congratulations to both students. This is an incredible achievement. Whilst a number of our students over the years have succeeded in being awarded scholarships to overseas universities, it is not often that a full 100% scholarship of this ilk is offered. Edi and Rachel can be very proud of their achievement!
