Shirley W. Bourquin Memorial Scholarship Awarded
Congratulations to Lauren Sallay on receipt of the Shirley W. Bourquin Memorial Scholarship award from the Rye FSC Founders Fund!
This biennial Scholarship was established to honor long-time Rye FSC president Bourquin's passion for encouraging the mastery of skating skills and a lifelong commitment to the sport of figure skating. The award recognizes Rye FSC home club members who demonstrate a similar passion for figure skating, and is to be used to defray skating-related or academic expenses.
Lauren, a Rye FSC home club member and student at the University of Notre Dame, is recognized for her passion and steadfast commitment to the sport of figure skating. Lauren is a gold medalist in moves in the field, a pre-gold medalist in ice dance and has completed her intermediate free skating test. For over 10 years, she skated on synchro lines from the pre-preliminary through junior levels in numerous competitions and shows, winning 3 US titles and making Team USA. She currently skates with the University of Notre Dame collegiate synchronized team. Lauren has volunteered countless hours with Rye FSC, was a founding member of the Rye FSC Junior Board, and currently is a collegiate liaison for the Club.
