River Valley Credit Union, Beacon Orthopaedics & Flyin' to the Hoop will be awarding a $1000 Scholarship to a teammate on one of the participating Ohio teams each year in the event. In another way to make a positive impact in the community, we wanted to honor one student-athlete each year that exemplifies the Flyin' to the Hoop Spirit by giving 100% in everything you do and remembering that "Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard." Congrats to these scholarship winners and good luck in their future endeavors – on the court, in the classroom... and most importantly, in life.
"River Valley is committed to being a community partner and is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor for this annual scholarship. This year marks the third year and River Valley loves helping to impact the life of one student-athlete each year with this scholarship. We are looking forward to meeting this year's recipient."
