The Sports Alliance was formed in 2003 as a committee of the Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau and functions to support, promote and encourage sporting events in Abilene. To date, the Alliance has awarded $62,000 in scholarships to deserving graduates.
The scholarships are supported by the success of the Action Sports Medicine Champions Classic held annually. The enthusiasm this event has generated, not only locally, but at the state level has brought favorable attention to Shotwell Stadium allowing Abilene to showcase the continued updates that make Shotwell one of the most desirable stadiums in Texas.
Congratulations to the award winners and best of luck to all 2012 graduates!
