NATIVE ATHLETES WITH DISABILITIES SUPPORTING ONE ANOTHER FOR A STRONG INDEPENDENT FUTURE
Student Athletes of the Year
In Partnership with Eves Fund for Native American Health Initiatives and other generous donors we are proud to announce our first annual Male and Female Student Athletes of the year.
This Award is meant to highlight the success of Native Americans with physical disabilities success both in sport and in the classroom. Para sports have been proven to improve outcomes in health, education and employment and the athletes are a great example of its benefits.
The awards recognize the students’ hard work and perseverance in overcoming obstacles to achieve their potential, both as athletes and students, redefining the possibilities for individuals with physical disabilities. They were selected for their success in the classroom and in the competitive arena as well as their future potential. These young people are inspiring examples for others to follow and they will be considered ambassadors for the Missions of Tribal Adaptive Organization and Eve’s Fund in Indian Country and wherever their futures take them. The young people selected for the inaugural 2021 awards will each receive a $1,500.00 scholarship and a custom design award plaque, made possible by financial support from Eve’s Fund.
