William Blair wins 2023 Elmer Stailing Scholarship

William Blair of Mooresville, North Carolina has been chosen as the 2023 recipient of the $2,000 Elmer Stailing Southern Region Scholarship. William is an incoming freshman at the University of Alabama and will be studying engineering.

"I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support, encouragement, and guidance of my Southern Region Water Ski Family through my junior skiing years, and I will always be grateful!" William says.

The USA Water Ski & Wake Sports Foundation scholarships are awarded each year to water skiers who show leadership abilities and demonstrate that involvement in the sport has helped them grow both personally and academically.

The Elmer Stailing Southern Region Scholarship is awarded every year to an AWSA Southern Regional Competitor and qualified student who is registered in a College or University. It has been funded by the Southern Region since 1990.

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 at the link below.
