Each year, high school seniors start to think about what’s next in their journey. Many times, that next step involves a 2-year or 4-year school, but the cost poses a large obstacle to post-secondary education. Enter Multnomah Athletic Foundation scholarships – all are rooted in athletics, community involvement, academics and financial need.
Since 2015, the Houser Scholarship has provided funding and freedom for students exploring higher education. It is a $10,000 scholarship (renewable for two years) awarded to a Lincoln High School student that represents these values while also demonstrating a financial gap to attend their first-choice school. The 2022 recipient is Xander Levine. He has put his all into his community through spirited initiatives and outreach. Xander has focused his high school career on expanding his knowledge base and trying new experiences. Whether on the water polo team, the constitution team, on the student paper or in the classroom, he continues to find new ways to be a part of the community around him and to take the lessons he learns forward into his life. Xander plans on attending Cal Poly in the fall with a focus on journalism.
Whether a scholarship increases access or fuels possibilities, the acknowledgment and encouragement a scholarship provides is powerful. Donors and volunteers are part of the team that support remarkable people moving towards the future and embracing their dreams. Give the gift to support by making a contribution to one of the foundation’s scholarship programs today.
