Over a hundred upcoming grads filled the auditorium waiting to be awarded with their scholarships and prepared to end one chapter and begin a new one. The InSports Foundation was excited to be represented among many other organizations and presented the a $1,000 scholarship to a student that demonstrated passion, worth-ethic, and composure.
This year's winner was Rishabh Gupta, from Apple Valley, MN. After the ceremony the InSports team had a chance to speak to Rishabh about his future plans and excitement to begin college. Rishabh grew up playing tennis with his dad and grandpa at a young age, he noted, "Tennis became an important part of my life not only because of the fun that accompanies the sport, but because of the values it's instilled in me." Tennis has taught him the importance of persistence, sticking with what you love through the ups and downs, and discipline.
Rishabh will be attending the University of California, Berkley in the Fall. He will be studying Political Science and hopes to work in Washington D.C in the future. The InSports Foundation is honored award InSports Foundation Athletic Scholarship to a hard-working and talented student. We wish Rishabh the best in his future endeavors.
