The family of Tim Olson says there were so many great applicants for the Foundation scholarships this year... they wanted to double up and award two Tim Olson Memorial Scholarships once again in 2022.
Paige Peshina has been named the second recipient of this year's $1500 Tim Olson Memorial Scholarship. Paige is from Malvern, Ohio, and is a sophomore at Rollins College majoring in social entrepreneurship. She is a swivel ski coach and instructor and will be competing on the U.S. Team this fall in the 2022 World Show Ski World Championships in Winter Haven, Florida.
The Tim Olson Memorial Scholarship was established by the family and friends of Tim Olson. A special provision of the scholarship is that it is awarded specifically to a wakeboarder or show skier. Matayla De Bruin of Wisconsin was also awarded the 2022 $1,500 Tim Olson Memorial Scholarship.
Each year, the USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation awards scholarships to water skiers who show leadership abilities and demonstrate how involvement in the sport has helped them grow both personally and academically.
The USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation is very proud of our young athletes and honored to support their future academic needs. You can help support our mission by joining or donating to the foundation HERE.
