OnPoint Recognizes Six Incredible Athletic and Activity Scholars Across Oregon
June 8, 2021
OnPoint Community Credit Union and the Oregon School Activities Association announced the six graduating seniors who have won scholarships of up to $5,000 through the 2021 OnPoint Community Credit Union Scholar Program.
OnPoint and the OSAA’s partnership recognizes graduating Scholar Athletes and Activity Scholars from OSAA member schools with two $5,000 scholarships and four $1,000 scholarships. The two winners of the $5,000 scholarships are Emilie Chau of South Salem High School and Julia Scher of South Eugene High School. The four winners of the $1,000 scholarships are Seth Handman of Creswell High School, Sabrina Li of Clackamas High School, Ayden Wolgamott of Elmira High School and Cecilia Wu of Franklin High School. Throughout the nomination period, April 1-30, OnPoint received over 320 submissions from 153 OSAA member schools.
“The Class of 2021 has adapted to unconventional learning environments, interruptions on the field and stage, and missing out on experiences that enrich the high school experience,” said Rob Stuart, President and CEO, OnPoint Community Credit Union. “We are proud to partner with the OSAA to honor six outstanding students who worked hard and remained dedicated through exceptional challenges. This year’s winners have worked tirelessly to inspire their community and achieve great success both in and out of the classroom. We celebrate their accomplishments and wish them continued success as they begin their next chapter.”
OnPoint’s Scholar Program honors graduating seniors who have achieved a 3.50 or higher unweighted cumulative grade point average and have earned either a varsity letter in an OSAA-sanctioned sport or competed in an OSAA-sanctioned activity. Winners were selected based on two letters of recommendation and essay questions around community leadership, academic achievement and how participating in OSAA activities helped them achieve their goals.
“We are excited to partner with OnPoint for the third year to honor those students who have gone the extra mile in academics, athletics, activities and their community,” said Peter Weber, Executive Director, Oregon School Activities Association. “These students have worked hard to achieve great success despite uncommon circumstances. Our community is the beneficiary of their commitment to excellence, and we look forward to seeing what they accomplish next.”
