U19 DEFENDER KEELIN FERRIS RECEIVES WAGS SCHOLARSHIP

Girondins USA U19 defender Keelin Ferris awarded the WAGS scholarship.  Ferris is one of four recipients awarded a $10,000 college scholarship by Women and Girls in Soccer (WAGS). 

Ferris is honored to receive this scholarship and is a great believer and supporter of the WAGS organization.  As a player she feels she would not be where she is today without the support of her coaches, teammates and family. Ferris looks to continue to empower women and girls through the beautiful game of soccer.  She is beyond excited to continue her education and soccer career at American University next year.  

“Soccer has shaped me into the person that I am today. It has taught me the importance of leadership, communication, teamwork, perseverance, determination and hard work” stated Ferris when asked the importance of soccer in her life.

Ferris added, “Playing soccer gave me the opportunity to be who I really am by forming some of my best memories and important, long-lasting relationships.”

Ferris has been playing elite travel soccer for nine (9) years across top clubs in Maryland. She was also a key member of the varsity team at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School.

Most recently Ferris joined Girondins USA as a defender and has been an integral player contributing the success of the team this year.



WAGS PROMOTES CONFIDENCE, STRENGTH, CHARACTER AND LEADERSHIP

WAGS is a charitable organization who’s mission is to empower girls and women across the globe through soccer. Six key programs that promote confidence, strength, character and leadership in women and girls make up the foundation of WAGS.

WAGS scholarship applicants must meet a variety of rigorous criteria. These include maintaining a minimum 3.7 GPA and a commitment to play soccer in college.  These applicants must also excel in a broad variety of extracurricular activities including playing on an elite travel soccer team and demonstrating active participation in community service.
