BTL, the authority in non-invasive body sculpting therapies, and professional basketball player, Andre Drummond, are excited to announce they have selected the five winners of their first-ever scholarship program – the BTL Scholar Draft.
The program awarded each of the five students a $15,000 grant towards tuition and college fees. The Scholar Draft was started to empower graduating high school and currently enrolled college student-athletes across the country to pursue higher education and strengthen their path to successful future careers. Entrants were asked to submit a 2-5 minute video sharing their aspirations and what confidence in their sport means to them, which was then reviewed by the BTL team and Andre Drummond himself. The program kicked off late last year on November 11 and officially closed the submission portal on Bold.org on February 1.
"The stories behind what fuels these young athletes' confidence and dedication were all so inspiring," said John Ferris, BTL Aesthetics Vice President of Marketing. "Through this grant, we hope the winners feel empowered and confident to move forward in their academic careers and truly invest in themselves – which is what BTL is truly all about at its core."
"It's really important to me that we continue to break down barriers and provide opportunities for kids who need them. This program is all about empowering student-athletes and giving them a chance for a better future," said Drummond.
The five lucky winners are based across the country, and each plays varying sports. The scholarship winners are Alaysia Oakes (Lynchburg, VA), Sydney Stapf (West Bloomfield, MI), Charity McDowell (Indianapolis, IN), Emaria Banks (Loganville, GA), and Terry Burrel III (Cypress, TX).
