After showing perseverance and overcoming adversity, three students from the Columbia Basin obtain financial support to advance their academic aspirations. Adam Doskoch of Trail, Roah Levy of Nelson and Michelle Moses of Robson will each receive $3,300 from the Neil Muth Memorial Scholarship to support their studies.

The scholarship was established in 2017 to honor Neil Muth, President and CEO of the Columbia Basin Trust from 2005 to 2016, who passed away in November 2016. Neil valued and supported perseverance and continuous learning. He encouraged his children, his staff and others to be curious, to find their own way and to never give up.

“People like Adam, Roah and Michelle show how you can find your way despite the difficulties that may come your way,” said Cathy Muth, Neil’s wife. “We commend them, past recipients of this scholarship, others who have shared their stories with us, and all who have faced adversity, for showing perseverance and courage. We welcome the opportunity to help students achieve their goals when it comes to shaping their lives now and in the future, while impacting other people and their communities in the process.

The scholarship is awarded by the Muth family, administered by the Trust and made possible through generous donations from family, friends, local governments and organisations.

Adam Doskoch is currently entering his third year at the University of Calgary, aiming to complete a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering combined with a Bachelor of Commerce in Finance – a goal that is expected to take about six years in total. Next summer, he would like to do an engineering internship somewhere in the Basin if possible. He realizes that his journey will not be an easy task, but he is sure that he will persevere through all difficulties and stay focused on his goal. He enjoys learning because it gives him the opportunity to acquire knowledge and new perspectives on life, in addition to allowing him to benefit the community in which he lives.

“Growing up in the Kootenays, my heart is here in the Basin, and after my educational journey, my goal is to return to the area and find employment in my engineering discipline,” Adam said.

“This will allow me to deepen my experience and knowledge of the engineering field, with the ultimate goal of obtaining my title of professional engineer. This scholarship will make a difference by allowing me to focus primarily on finishing my studies, as well as giving me the extra time to join a college club which will also deepen my educational experience. I would like to thank the Muth family for the opportunity to receive this scholarship, as it will allow me to pursue my passion for lifelong learning.

Growing up in Nelson, Roah Levy truly enjoyed a life filled with adventure and close friendships, as well as watching the city grow and change. She is now excited to leave, get an education, and come back so she can appreciate him even more from an adult perspective. She is on her way to Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo for the heavy equipment operator program. Upon completion, she intends to work in the outdoor adventure tourism industry in the West Kootenay in operations.

“I will miss this beautiful community and my family,” Roah said. “However, I’m excited to have new adventures and professional certification under my belt, so I’m ready for my future. I’m also looking forward to entering a field of work with such a low percentage of women. to help demonstrate to young women that anyone can do any job. If this excites you, it’s worth doing. Thanks to the Muth family for awarding me the Neil Muth scholarship. I will honor this opportunity with effort and enthusiasm.

After 12 years working in the hospitality industry, Michelle Moses realized she wanted to better her life and enrolled in Selkirk College’s Law and Justice program in 2021. After exceeding her own expectations, winning awards of excellence in five of her courses and finished first year with a 4.14 average, Michelle will return to Selkirk to complete the final year of the program to earn a liberal arts degree. Once she graduates, she hopes to continue her journey in research and historical archiving – a passion she discovered through a summer job – and start working to improve the situation of Indigenous women and girls. missing and murdered.

“If someone had told me two years ago that I would be where I am today, I would have laughed,” Michelle said. “Taking action to improve my life and applying to college at the age of 28 was a tough decision to make, but a year later I can’t even begin to express how proud I am of ‘choosing to do this for myself. I am so grateful to the Neil Muth family for making this journey possible, as well as to my own family, friends, instructors and new mentors for continually providing me with such incredible support and motivation. I can honestly say that I don’t know where I would be right now without you all by my side.

Washington’s recruiting class of 2022 has finished taking shape. But that’s only part of the story, mostly because it’s a whole new crew running the ship.

Under the direction of Lake Jimmyaccording to the plan initially defined by Chris Petersonthe strategy employed by the Huskies meant that they would try to lock in all prospects leading up to day one, get them all signed on day one, and then they could move on to building the team for the following year.

It was fair to expect Lake to employ a similar strategy for his first full signing class, but with some prospects they either take their time or just take advantage of the process to the point of not signing until the signing period. regular, which was in February.

Well, you can throw a lot out the window, but not because Lake changed his plans. Lake is no longer Washington’s head coach, so he was Kalen DeBoer trying to do their best to save the recruiting class of 2022 with a few late visits for those hoping to sign mid-year and then a mad rush to fill the rest of the class during the regular signing period after putting a press full field those who did not sign with a school in December.

Here are the prep prospects who signed with Washington during the mid-year signing period through mid-December.

WR Denzel Boston

AND Ryan Otto

LO Parker Brailford

DE/OLB Lance Holtzclaw

And here are the prep prospects DeBoer was able to sign during the February signing period.

DL Armon Parker

DL Jayvon Parker

comics Tristan Dunn

comics green javiion

And there was also a player for the recruiting class of 2022 already registered, RB Emeka Megwa. He has since left the football program.

But UW added QB Michael Penix, Jr. RB Aaron Dumas, RB wayne taulapapaRB/WR William NixonWR Lonyatta Alexander, Jr.DB Jordan PerrymanP Kevin Ryan, KG Bright camera, KG Demario KingKG Kris Molland DL Sekai Afoa-Asoau than transfers that have signed with Washington. And corner half Michael Powell has been listed, so it’s a number that can be added to the list.

There is also an annual limit of 25, but Washington will be well below that number for this particular cycle. But the overall number of 85 is still another story. Obviously this is a raw number and it takes into account those who have graduated or exhausted their eligibility, underclass who are expected to go pro, those who have submitted or plan to submit their names to the portal transfer, those who withdrew due to the coronavirus or had to retire, or those who never made it to campus for personal reasons.

There’s also another twist to the tail that affects the numbers. Since eligibility was suspended for the 2020 season, this means that all FBS programs could have a number above 85 up to the number of senior scholars currently on their official roster for the 2021 season. If we include the signers of 2022 to those slated to return for one more season (and we’re including everyone at this point until the news dictates otherwise), here are the raw numbers position by position:

QB-3
RB-7
WR-8
ET-5
OL-16
DL/EDGE – 16
LB-7
DB-16
Special teams – 3

It is therefore 39 players in attack, 39 in defense and 3 specialists. This is in addition to 81 players in total.

All things being equal, UW’s attrition count currently sits at 0. This means that they don’t need anyone else to leave the program to be able to sign more players. With the total scholarships at 81this means that Washington could sign for 4 more players, but it’s more likely that this late in the process they would place one or two top players on a purse. Likely candidates are Camden Sirmon, Nick Juran, Zeke Pelluer, Ruperake Fuavaiand Drew Fowler.


Here’s a look at the players who moved on after the 2021 season, or who were on the 2021 roster but have already moved on.

RBSean McGrew*, Pleasant Kamari*, Caleb Berry, Emeka Megwa

KGRyan Bowman*, Jackson Simon, MJ Tafisi, Cooper McDonald, Jordan Lolohea

comicsTrent McDuffie, Kyler Gordon, Brendan Radley-Hiles, Jacobe Covington

What you will see below is the current look of the scholarship list as it stands heading into the 2022 season. As shown above, one or two casual players can get a scholarship for the season due to their availability, so don’t be surprised if this happens before the start of the fall term.

BLACKSBURG — The Virginia Tech coaching staff has talked about an extra receiver with one of two open scholarship slots it has for fall camp.

The Hokies came out of the spring with just nine scholarship players in the position, and that number includes a pair of real freshmen.

Fontel Mines, the technical receivers coach, would appreciate a bit more depth, but those current numbers don’t freak him out.

“We have guys who are more than capable,” Mines said in an interview with The Roanoke Times in June. “We tell them since we set foot here, we’ve had enough. We have enough in the room. I think these guys buy into that philosophy.

Mines came out of the spring with a pretty good idea of ​​likely first-team receivers. Veterans Kaleb Smith and Jadan Blue are up there with sophomore receiver Da’Wain Lofton, who Mines says is a star in the making.

The rotation beyond is more of a work in progress with a group of receivers — Dallan Wright, Jaylen Jones, Stephen Gosnell, Christian Moss, Tucker Holloway and Xayvion Turner-Bradshaw — who have combined three career catches for 26 yards.

People also read…

This inexperience has drawn a lot of attention, but Mines thinks they left spring camp heading in the right direction.

“They work,” Mines said. “That’s the biggest attribute all these guys have. They just work, they put their heads down and go to work.

Wright was an example.

Mines and new head coach Brent Pry mentioned that Wright was one of the standout players in early practices. Injuries prevented him from maintaining the same level of play throughout camp, but Mines was happy with how Wright fought through that adversity.

“It wasn’t something flashy, but the fact that he got into a fight, got rehabilitated and got back on the pitch [for the spring game] showed a level of maturity that I had never seen before,” Mines said.

Mines wants to see more of Wright this fall.

“You’re talking about a guy who’s blinking and showing all the signs of having the ability to be an ACC receiver, he’s got it,” Mines said. “He has length. He has speed. He trusts. He needs to continue to be more durable and continue to embrace the receiver position.

Gosnell, a transfer from the University of North Carolina, also had an uneven spring. The third-year wide receiver played 15 games over two years for the Tar Heels, with several of his reps serving on special teams.

“As a transfer is coming, it’s a new dressing room, it’s a new staff, it’s a new attack and it was a lot of new for him,” Mines said. “I think he kind of struggled to push his body to get in shape, and I think if you ask him now he’ll tell you I was maybe a couple pounds heavier than I was. should have been.”

This won’t be a problem for the fall.

According to Mines, Gosnell remained at Blacksburg after the end of camp and spent much of his time at the football center.

“I’ve been here on random days and he’s still here,” Mines said. “He’s still in the weight room. He has changed his body and he moves better, he looks better and he feels better. …He just needs confidence. He needs an opportunity to prove himself and get comfortable in the dressing room and familiarize himself with the staff and his teammates.

Gosnell has already proven at Mines that he can catch the ball, and at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, he has some physicality in his game as well.

“He’s going to find different ways to break up,” Mines said. “He’s really savvy.”

Jones might be the closest of that first group with Mines giving him a chance to work all three receiver positions during spring camp. The sophomore receiver had one of the standout moments of the spring game when he turned a short catch into a first down with an impressive juke move on veteran safety Chamarri Conner.

“I think as the spring progressed it got better and better,” Mines said. “He started on special teams as a gunner and running on kickoffs, and those were the things that were noticed. He continued to gain self-confidence. »

Jones shows up to his exit meeting with Mines at the end of spring camp with a notebook and a pen — he was the only catcher to do so.

“That’s who he is,” Mines said.

Mines can’t wait to see what’s next for each of them in the weeks to come.

“I’m about right at seven o’clock [receivers] that I feel good, really good,” Mines said. “I’m going to coach my butt and coach everyone in this room and keep elevating these guys.”

Jordan Palmer, Director of Digital Content

One of the most notable things about The J is its collection of artwork. Some 215 works of art, valued at more than $1 million and representing around 50 artists, were all donated by Jewish philanthropist and developer Michael Staenberg. And within the collection, one artist stands out, having the most pieces, 56, included in The J’s collection. This artist is James Smith.

James Smith and Michael Staenberg

For many years, Smith worked with Staenberg, who was the force behind the development of CCGs not only in St. Louis, but also in Kansas City, Denver, Omaha and St. Paul. Smith’s work can be found in the public collections of these facilities.

“James Michael Smith conducted an enormous amount of research to create these images in conjunction with the Jewish beliefs and installations for which these works of art were created,” said Maneta Siegel, the former director of Gallery At The District.

Sadly, Smith passed away in March this year at the age of 73. Shortly after his death, an exhibition opened honoring Smith and his work at Gallery At The District.

At the opening of the exhibit, Staenberg remembered his friend and commented on how Smith, through his art, learned so much about Judaism.

New scholarship

All works in the exhibition are for sale, with proceeds going to Smith’s family and intended to support other artists in the form of a new scholarship honoring Smith.

Recently, James Smith’s wife, Mary, announced that she was arranging a new scholarship at the University of Illinois, where Smith earned her MFA. He also began his career as a university professor by teaching Fine Arts as a graduate student in Champagne.

The James Michael Smith Endowed Scholarship will benefit the School of Art and Design at the University of Illinois College of Applied Arts at Urbana-Champaign. Recipients must be Studio Art majors with a good academic standing and a concentration in painting. Preference will be given to students primarily in painting, drawing, printmaking and/or sculpture and may be used for tuition fees, materials and art tools.

The exhibition will continue until the end of June. Viewing is by appointment only, so call 314-356-0223 to schedule a time to view the exhibit. Here is an overview of each piece of the exhibition that is for sale.

CHARLESTON, W. Va. – The Hope Scholarship Board voted on Tuesday to process more than 180 applications received after the May 16 deadline for the new program.

West Virginia Assistant Treasurer for Savings Programs Amy Willard told the council that most parents who applied late said they had recently learned about the program.

“Where it’s a new program, a lot of those parents have indicated they just weren’t aware,” Willard said. “I think in future years the board may want to look at it differently once the program is established.”

The board voted to process most of the requests. The state Department of Education representative on the board abstained.

The Hope Scholarship, created by the state legislature in 2012, allows families to use money from the state education system for expenses such as individual tuition or extracurricular activities; tuition and fees at participating schools; tutoring (except not by a member of the student’s family); fees for national standardized tests; fees for after-school or summer programs; educational services and therapies and more.

Students entering the school for the first time are immediately eligible for the program.

Willard reported on Tuesday that a total of 3,146 applications have now been approved and a few hundred more are still being reviewed. The final number of scholarships could reach 3,600 students. The cost of the program is currently $13.5 million. Each qualifying student will receive $4,298.60 in the first year.

Hope Board Member State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey asked Willard on Tuesday when individual county school boards would begin to see a reduction in funding due to Hope students.

Patrick Morrisey, Attorney General of West Virginia (file)

“County school board funding for the following school year was based on their enrollment for that current school year, so they would not see any reduction in their funding until the following year. Thus, during this first year, no funds would be withdrawn from them. Willard said.

Morrisey said county school boards will actually be in a stronger financial position this first year because they will have fewer students but will still be funded as if they were enrolled in a public school.

Kelly Allen, executive director of the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy, expressed concern in a MetroNews article earlier this month about the financial effects of the scholarship.

Kelly Allen

“The program’s eligibility is much broader than similar programs in any other state, even before it opens to all students in 2026,” Allen said. “Over time, the Hope Scholarship will become even more expensive, diverting hundreds of millions of dollars from our public education system.”

Willard also announced Tuesday that the application process for educational service providers to participate in the program will begin on June 30. She said it will also include the second phase of West Virginia non-public schools that have received links to participate in the program.

Coombs will attend Jamestown Community College next year and major in education. The JTA scholarship is awarded annually to a senior who is entering the field of education.

“Every spring it is very exciting to present the JTA scholarship to a high school student from Jamestown who is attending college in the fall to begin their career in education,” said JTA President Stephanie Sardi. “The Jamestown Teachers’ Association is very proud to know that we are playing a small part in Regan Coombs’ future by presenting her with this scholarship. We hope that when Regan receives her teaching program, she will return to Jamestown to pursue her professional career in Jamestown Public Schools and become a member of the Jamestown Teachers’ Association.

In his essay on the 2022 JTA Scholarship Winner, Coombs said: “You never know or fully understand what you’re signing up for when you become a teacher, but establishing a safe place for students, encouraging them to do their best, and giving them the materials they need to succeed is exhilarating. to look and feel. . The smallest things in life can be the biggest motivators. In small communities, like Jamestown, education is a catalyst. I considered teen physical education and teaching of adolescent history, especially U.S. history.Building a safe, comfortable, and stable environment where everyone can learn so they can apply themselves later in life should be the primary goal of any educator. The future is unpredictable, but the idea of ​​potentially being the person a student needs to take that next step in life is enough of an incentive.

“I did not expect to receive this award” said Coombs. “When they read my name at the award ceremony, I was shaking. I appreciate receiving the JTA scholarship because it will help me pay for extra fees or books I will need in school, which will also be useful for my parents.

Coombs has received numerous honors and awards including the Louise A Roskamp Scholarship, Melville Jackson Memorial Scholarship, JCC USA Scholarship and was also named an All-WNY Scholar Athlete Honorable Mention. Regan was also actively involved at JHS with volleyball.
