Congratulations to seventh grader Gabriella "Gabby" Holm as she was one of sixteen students in the US to receive a scholarship from the Life is Better When You Surf Scholarship Program. The $1000 scholarship, awarded by Global Surf Industries, can be used toward her educational expenses. She also won a brand new surfboard!

To apply, a letter of recommendation was submitted on Gabby's behalf, and Gabby composed a short essay and video describing why "life is better when you surf." In her essay, Gabby shares how being in the ocean gives her an opportunity to enjoy a different part of God's creation. She also fondly recounts how surfing is intertwined with family time in her household. Great work, Gabby, for demonstrating the positive values of surfing!
