Nancy Beadle Memorial Scholarship 2018

First Annual Nancy Beadle Memorial Scholarship Presentation
As some of you know, Nancy Beadle was a member of Swan Creek Rowing Club, who served on the Swan Creek Board for two years, and loved being part of a sport that required individuals to continually challenge themselves to advance the performance of their team. Nancy was particularly fond of the Swan Creek youth program because she valued the contributions the youth members made to the club, by helping the masters at regattas, doing work at the site during the season, and assisting in end-of-season boat storage and equipment maintenance.

When Nancy passed away last year, her family graciously offered to honor her memory by funding a $2,000 scholarship to be awarded annually by the Delaware River Recreation Foundation to a senior Swan Creek youth athlete who shared Nancy’s love of rowing, courage in the face of challenges, and dedication to one’s community. This year’s selection committee received a number of impressive and moving applications, which made the decision very difficult and quite close.

The person ultimately selected by the committee demonstrated, as Nancy did, courage in the face of personal challenge, dedication to her community and an abiding appreciation for rowing as a transcending and positive force in her life. Please join us in congratulating Michaela Park as the winner of the 2018 Nancy Beadle Memorial Scholarship.
