Congratulation to 2015 Sportsmanship Winnner Jackie Tu

Congratulate to Jacqueline Tu for winning the SEGL Sportmanship award this year. Each year, member clubs of SEGL (South Eastern Great Lakes) are eligible to nominate a club member for the award. The Columbus Figure Skating club council requests names of skaters to be  considered for nomination by our club. Qualities considered include: leadership, sportsmanship, spirit, perseverance, and industriousness. This year the members presented for nomination were:  Katelyn Fetherolf and Jackie Tu.  Both skaters are excellent examples of sportsmanship, but the club can submit only one nomination.  It was a very difficult decision and the council selected Jackie for nomination from our club. Jackie traveled to Cincinnati this past Saturday and received her Reward certificate. She was pictured with SEGL president Pam Pangle and president of Skate Club of Cincinnati Jeff Privett during the reward ceremony.

We encourage all club members to continue nominate your skating peers for this scholarship reward through your membership renew process in June.
