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.
