“Being apart of Dale Hansen’s scholar program was amazing,” Kathy said in a text message. “I was given the opportunity to gain insight on how other athletes strive both on and off the field, what their goals in life were, and how adversity shaped all of us. Not to mention, the food at the banquet was fantastic!”
