 Three Carson High Student-Athletes awarded scholarships
Tuesday morning, the NIAA announced its One Nevada Ten Student-Athletes of the Year.
Representing the Senators were Karen Beglin, Jeremy Heaton and Carlos Torres.
The NIAA and One Nevada Credit Union awarded $20.000 in scholarship funds to graduating high school student-athletes in the Silver State.

“The spirit of the Silver State is embodied in high school athletics and activities,” said Bart Thompson, retiring Executive Director of the NIAA. “The Top Ten winners we honored this year achieved and maintained an exceptionally high level of excellence in all aspects of their lives. These will be our future leaders. They were dealt a horrible blow during the conclusion of their high school career. Yet, they rose up, persevered and moved forward at an outstanding level. They will continue to make a positive difference in our communities.”

Ten student-athletes in both Northern and Southern Nevada were selected for the scholarship.

Northern Nevada top 10 student athletes – Karen Beglin, Carson; Karli Burns, Fernley; Dylan Cleary, Incline High; Jeremy Heaton, Carson; Kili Lehmkuhl, North Tahoe; Kendra Lusk, Spring Creek; Carson Miller, Reed; Evelyne Reyes, Sparks High; Avery Strasdin, Churchill County; Carlos Torres, Carson.
