These six athletes have the honor of being BSF Ambassadors this season, which comes with a $1,000 scholarship and the responsibility of representing BSF.
“This program is important because it gives athletes incentives to be leaders within their disciplines, and it teaches them about the club and the value of its existence,” says BSF Board Member Barbie Huber. “They learn life skills and create friendships of respect and support.”
Part of the ambassador scholarship requires athletes to communicate with a board member (or donor) throughout their season, to volunteer at one BSF event and one community event. All the while, they’ll be representing BSF to the highest standards.
Board member Bruce Swann plans to bring this group of ambassadors to volunteer at the Big Sky Special Olympics on February 25. This particular volunteer opportunity has been formative for our past ambassadors. Many have identified it as the most influential day of their season.
Congratulations, ambassadors! Thank you for representing BSF, and may you find growth and leadership in the season to come.
