The OISA Board and the 2016 Shredwell Scholarship review committee are pleased to announce that Sarah Colbert of Lake Oswego is the winner of the 2016 Shredwell Scholarship. Sarah excelled in academics throughout her high school career and took home 2 bronze medals in the 2015 OISA State Finals. She placed 3rd overall in Slopestyle and the Lake Oswego girls took 3rd in squad for the Banked Slalom.
We also want to thank the other 9 applicants for the time and effort put into their applications. We know that it’s busy time of the year for all of the graduating seniors and we truly appreciate your work. Good luck to all of you in your future endeavors. Using a strict criteria, the 3 members of the independent review committee carefully considered each applicant’s entry and ranked them in order, the standard OISA point rubric was then applied to those rankings and the points totaled.
Sarah will be attending the University of Colorado, where she’ll be trading the guidance of longtime LOST head coach Chip Treadwell for “guidance” from a different Chip.
The OISA Executive Board would also like to extend our gratitude to the Shredwell Scholarship review committee. Without their efforts and diligence this award would be impossible. We are truly grateful for your service.
