Six $1K scholarships to be awarded for student athletes displaying integrity

(Phoenix, January 10, 2023) –  Better Business Bureau Serving the Pacific Southwest (BBB), together with the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA), are looking for the next BBB Ethical Athlete. The BBB Ethical Athlete Scholarship honors Arizona high school student athletes who do the right thing, no matter who is watching.

Nominations from parents, coaches, teachers, students and other community members are accepted. Applications share the story of what attributes make the student an ethical athlete and students must have a GPA of 2.75 or higher. Six winning students will be selected after scoring from a panel of community judges and awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

“In my heart I knew I had to tell the ref the truth as that is how I was raised. Ethics and integrity can be instilled in all of us,” shared 2022 scholarship recipient, MiMi Harris.

Nominated for the scholarship by her mentor, Harris received national media recognitions because of her decision to do the right thing, even though it cost her team the win. She is currently attending Alabama State University and plays on the women’s volleyball team.

Three Ethical Athletes will be selected from two nomination periods with applications received from January 1 to February 28 and again from March 1 to April 30.

Sponsors who are interested in supporting this year’s scholarship can email scholarships@bbbcommunity.org for more information.
