The 2019 TRJMS Scholarships go to two fabulous young women: Alina Markustya and Grace McCunn.
Alina is a nationally competitive gymnast who is also an extraordinary musician and budding scientist. Her nominators repeatedly cited her “dedication to improvement, determination, teamwork, learning, and [her] drive toward success.”
Grace McCunn is a unique young woman whose primary “extracurricular activity” has been philanthropy for Blank. Children’s Hospital. She is also passionate about her activities in music, her church, and her soccer team. In the words of one nominator: “Grace’s passion for soccer makes me smile; her passion for helping those who are suffering makes me proud.”
We had another fabulous class of nominees for 2019. Musicians abounded from trombone to bassoon to ukulele! Athletes competed in gymnastics, soccer, and track. The 8th grade celebration listed so many things these people are doing it’s amazing. Watch out world!
