It is a great honor to present the first ever Xcellerated Speed Training Scholarship award. This scholarship was developed to reward students for their hard work and dedication on and off the field. The requirements of this scholarship are rigorous. A student must maintain a GPA of at least 3.5, been a member of the Oley Valley Field Hockey program for 4 years, have participated in Xcellerated Speed Training’s training protocol, been a role model on the field and off the field, and have spent time volunteering in the community.
The individual receiving this award has exceeded all of the above qualifications of the scholarship and is one of the hardest working individuals I know. She has been the captain of the field hockey team, President of the Spanish Club and member of the National Honor Society. She is also in Student Council and can always be seen at sporting events cheering on her classmates.
I am proud to have been able to train her, and I have no doubt she is going to achieve many great things in her lifetime, which I hope to watch take place. It is with distinct pleasure that I award this Xcellerated Speed Training scholarhip to Samantha Buzalewski. She will attending Wake Forest University in the fall and will be playing for their field hockey program.
