  • Scholarship Description
  • This fund was established by Stephanie Hunsberger to commemorate the influence that her grandmother, Elizabeth Horvath had on Stephanie's achievements and focus toward goals. Elizabeth encouraged Stephanie to remember that in difficult times we must fill our hearts with understanding and compassion, always focusing on the improvement of ourselves. Elizabeth inspired Stephanie to remember that when it seems like we are alone in our lane, there is always something greater along for the swim that is able to lift our arms and move our legs to the wall.
