CONGRATULATIONS 2017 GRADUATING SENIORS AWARD RECIPIENTS

Congratulations to Dionna Davis, Aryana Nazem, and Julia Marut, recipients of the US Figure Skating Graduating Seniors Award.

The Graduating Seniors Program was developed to recognize the achievements of those individuals graduating from high school who have made the commitment to continue their training in figure skating while pursuing their academic studies.

The purpose of this program is to honor and credit those qualified graduates for their achievements during their high school years through the presentation of a certificate to the skater during a school function or recognition opportunity.

To further applaud the achievements of the individuals awarded, U.S. Figure Skating will publish the names of the recipients on both the U.S. Figure Skating Graduating Seniors Program webpage, as well as in SKATING magazine.
