NIAAA Section 2 Selects Scholarship Winners
Indianapolis, IN (July 15, 2021) – Kayla Ogburn and Braden Bohannon are the 2021 winners of the Section 2 NIAAA Student Athlete Scholarship. They were chosen on June 16-18, 2021 at the annual Section 2 spring meeting.
Section student-athlete scholarships are provided each year by the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) to one male and one female student athlete from each section for their distinguished scholastic, leadership, and sportsmanship qualities. In order for a student to apply for and receive the scholarship, they must meet specific requirements including a certain level of athletic and academic achievements, amongst other criteria.
Ogburn graduated from Dayton Christian School in Miamisburg, Ohio, where Benjamin Shroyer is the athletic administrator. Her parents are Matthew and Tiffany Ogburn.
As a student at Dayton Christian, she graduated with distinction and an Honors diploma. She was also a member of the National Honors Society.
As a freshman Ogburn tore her ACL, creating a major obstacle to work through early on in her career.
After she recovered, she was a three-year varsity letter winner in both girls soccer and girls basketball. She was named All-State 2nd team for soccer twice, and was 1st Team All-Conference as a senior in basketball.
Ogburn also led at Dayton Christian as a student leader in school admissions. In her community, she was a youth soccer skills mentor and volunteered at Shoes for Shoeless, Feed Me Need, and Operation Christmas Child.
