Faith Ellms receives Master's University Scholarship
December 21, 2019
On Nov. 12, Faith Ellms, a Valley Oaks Charter School senior, signed a Master's University (MU) Academic and Athletic Scholarship with the women's golfing coach, Jacob Hicks. The signing was attended by VOCS staff, students and her parents.
"I have been golfing since I was about 4 years old. My grandparents began taking me out every day when I was about 4 and a half," Faith said.
She is currently part of the Junior Club at the Bear Valley Springs Golf & Country Club. Faith caught the attention of the MU representatives, and Coach Hicks decided she would be an asset to the program and the university. The stackable scholarship will cover as much of her athletic, as well as academic, tuition as possible.
Faith has attended VOCS since kindergarten. During high school, she has taken advantage of diverse class schedules, both at VOCS and local and online colleges, which has allowed her to participate in numerous extracurricular activities. She is Interact Club President, involved in drama, choir and dances at J&M Dance Studio. She also participates in the AWANA program at her church, and of course - she golfs!
Faith will major in Liberal Studies to become an elementary school teacher.
