Three Page High School students each earned a $1,000 scholarship from Dixie Ellis Lower Antelope Canyon Tours on Oct. 21 after they kicked a field goal during half time of the Sand Devils football game.
Gianna Manning, Alison Mallavia and Kira Bolger were chosen to receive the scholarships. If the students missed their field goals, they would receive a $700 scholarship. If they made the field goal, they would receive a $1,000 scholarship. Manning, Mallavia and Bolger were all successful in their field goal kicks.
Dixie Ellis Lower Antelope Canyon Tours has sponsored this event for several years.
“We are big supporters of higher education for all students and want to be a part of helping them achieve those goals,” said Leilah Young. “Sometimes kids just need a little extra push of encouragement to continue their education.”
