ASHE Phoenix Sonoran Section 2023 Scholarship Awards

The ASHE Phoenix Sonoran Section proudly awarded six scholarships last month, made possible through the funds collected from the golf tournament that ASHE hosted back in May. We extend our sincere appreciation to all who participated in making this initiative a success.

We extend our sincere appreciation to the diligent committee members: Andy Jamrogiewicz, Brent Forstie, Andrew Moreno, Adrian Leon, and Derek Smith, for their invaluable efforts in this process.

As previously communicated, among the exceptional pool of 19 applications, the committee identified two standout winners, two in the subsequent tier, and two more in the following tier. All six recipients were deemed deserving of recognition for their outstanding merit. Given the challenge of distinguishing between candidates within each tier, the decision was made to allocate equal awards to each.

Congratulations to the awardees:

  • Brooke Hampton (ASU) - $3,500
  • Bruno Villafuerte (UA) - $3,500
  • Cynthia Navarro (UA) - $2,500
  • Jenna Hays (NAU) - $2,500
  • Mariah Boler (NAU) - $1,500
  • Samuel Montano (ASU) - $1,500
