ASSOCIATIONNEWS Honored by ELITE Contributor, On Trac Garage Door Co Inc, Chuck Colton Sarah Godden Region 9 Sponsor: Easy Open Door Co., Lakeside, CA School: University of California Davis, Davis, California "I will be attending UC Davis and am very excited for this opportunity that will allow me to grow as a person and set my foundation for becoming a veterinarian. Moving away from my family and becoming my own person will be a challenging experience, but a good one; I see my college experience as a way to become independent and to prepare myself for the world to come. I will be majoring in Animal Science in hopes to go into veterinary school to earn my DVM and become a zoo vet. With schooling comes a price tag, and I will be forever grateful for the IDA Scholarship which has made my dreams that much easier to obtain." Julia Hall Region 7 Sponsor: Valley Overhead Door, Decatur, AL School: The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL "I am currently in my third year at the University of Alabama, where I am studying Creative Advertising. Upon my graduation in May, I plan to pursue a career as an Art Director at a creative ad agency. On campus, I am an intern for the Creative Director of the University's football program, which keeps things exciting and very busy. Roll Tide!" Julia is also an avid volunteer and member of Delta Zeta, Advertising Federation, Hike for Hearing, and Habitat for Humanity. Hayden Hill Region 6 Sponsor: Hill Enterprises, Gulf Breeze, FL School: Samford University, Birmingham, AL "I would like to thank the IDA Scholarship Foundation for selecting me as a 2017 Scholarship recipient. The scholarship funds will be put to good use. I recently graduated from Trinitas Christian School in Pensacola, FL where I lettered in baseball and soccer. I was a three-time MVP winner in baseball. I am a member of First Baptist Church-Pensacola, FL and recently served as President of our Chapel Choir (a high school choir that toured internationally in summer 2016 and summer 2017). I am attending Samford University in Birmingham, AL where I am majoring in Nursing. After receiving my B.S.N., I plan on pursuing a career as either a D.N.P (Nurse Practitioner) or a C.R.N.A (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists). I would love to earn a living by using my God-given abilities to serve others in their time of greatest need." Audrey Hixenbaugh Region 3 Sponsor: Cunningham Door & Window, Louisville, KY School: Bellarmine University, Louisville, KY "I am a sophomore nursing student and a member of the Bellarmine University swim team. My goal for this swim season is to make it back to finals at our Greater Lakes Valley Conference meet in February. Over the next 3 years, I would like to one day final in the top 8 at Conference and even make NCAA by the time I graduate. After graduating with a BSN, I would like to be a neonatal or pediatric nurse, taking my love for children and medicine to further help others in health care. Ultimately I would like to marry and have a family of my own one day, but until then, I hope to use my knowledge and love for science to help others and to learn more about the incredibly complex and intricate body that God has given us. Outside of my time in the pool and in the classroom, I enjoy playing piano, spending time with friends and family, and anything outdoors."
