The Green Mountain Athletic Association (GMAA) announced Trevor Houchens is one of three recipients of their 2017 GMAA Scholarships. The other two awardees are Sarah Gafner-Bergeron of Burlington and Theresa Noonan of Montpelier.
Houchens, a recent graduate of South Burlington High School, ran cross country, indoor track and field, and outdoor track all four years of high school and was captain of the team his senior year. He says, “Running has brought me into a community of people who are not only great runners, but also great friends andstudents.” Houchens plans to attend Brown University to study computer science.
The Green Mountain Athletic Association presents three graduating high school seniors with $750 scholarships based on their running history and their intent to continue their running careers in college. Funds for the scholarship are raised through the annual 5K Cross Country Scholarship Run in August as well as by a generous contribution from TrackLife Timing of South Burlington.
