FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Truckee/North Tahoe Area Student Athletes Earn Martis Camp Community Foundation Scholarship Funds

TRUCKEE, Calif. (Monday, May 19, 2014) – Truckee and North Tahoe area student athletes Noah Rodarte, Sawyer Coll, Blaise Bibolet, Mia Bibolet, Mikey Lampe and Samantha Lampe have been recognized for their academic achievement, community service, and dedication to the Northstar Ski and Snowboard Teams.

In partnership with the Martis Camp Community Foundation, the Northstar Team Foundation proudly announced the six recipients of the 2014 Martis Camp Scholarship, valued at $5,000, at the honors ceremony held Saturday, May 17 at the Family Barn in Martis Camp.  The Martis Camp Scholarship was created in 2013 to support local student athletes who dedicate service in their community.

“While we are extremely proud of all our recipients, we called special attention to our local Truckee student athletes, Noah Rodarte and Sawyer Coll, who both compete with the Northstar Freeride Teams,” said Jordan Bender, a director and board member with the Northstar Team Foundation.  “Noah and Sawyer are so impressive, particularly for elementary school students.  Their devotion to community service in Truckee, including participation in Truckee Day and collection for local food donation reflect their commitment to their community.  Noah additionally helps with the Salvation Army, Little Free Libraries and Young Life Adventures, while Sawyer spends extra time volunteering with Sierra Senior Services and his school’s PTO,” he added.

Additional scholarship fund recipients included Blaise Bibolet, Mia Bibolet, Mikey Lampe and Samantha Lampe—all of whom attend junior high and high school in the area.  In addition to academic dedication, all show remarkable commitment for their other team sports, as well as community churches and non-profit volunteerism at Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe and Operation Christmas Child.  “This year’s recipients possess exceptional ability and enthusiasm for balancing their academics, community involvement, and sports participation,” Bender said.  “We are so proud of them.”

About Northstar Team Foundation

The N.T.F. believes that necessary ski and ride skills are also important life skills, regardless of the level to which a young athlete aspires.  The N.T.F. functions to promote healthy youth through snow sports and to support families who strive to provide meaningful opportunities through academics, winter sports, and community engagement.
