Since 1990, 26 young women have been recipients of a scholarship from the Cedar Spring’s Women’s Club. This year Audriana Boomgaard, daughter of John and Cherri’ Kerr, of Cedar Springs, was selected by the committee to receive the $1,000.00 award.
Audri was very involved in the Cedar Springs High School Varsity Soccer team and helped put on community soccer camps for children. She has been asked to manage Spring Arbor University Women’s Soccer Team in the fall. She was a member of the 2009 Red Flannel Court and was selected as a student leader for her church’s youth group where she was also involved in Vacation Bible School, Christian Life Club, Sunday School, on the worship team and distributing food for the needy families.
Preparing for the future has been an important goal for Audri. When she enters Spring Arbor University this fall she will already have completed a full semester of college thru dual enrollment. Her career goal is to obtain a PhD in Children’s Clinical Psychology. Working with children and young adults who are coping with handicaps, defects and life-threatening illnesses is her ambition.
Congratulations and best of luck, Audri.
