Shiann Fritzler Awarded Walter Ely Scholarship



Shiann Fritzler, Walsh High School Student, was awarded the 9th Annual SDS Walter Ely Scholarship, Monday, May 20th at the Southeastern Development Services office in the amount of $1,200.  Board members selected her written essay that showed her compassion for individuals with intellectual and development disabilities and her well-planned future goals.

“I’m planning to attend Bethany College in Linsborg, Kansas in the fall, majoring in psychology with an emphasis on physical therapy. I selected these studies because I was injured with a torn ACL on two occasions and I know from experience that rehabilitation is as much mental as well as physical healing and I hope to be able to work in both fields,” she explained.

Shianne lives near Two Butters, CO and has grown up with a brother who suffers from Cerebral Palsy and has shown great compassion and love for him.
