We are pleased to announce our 2020 recipients for the Washington State Legends of Soccer / Alan Hinton Scholarship.

Elizabeth Martinez is a recent graduate of Mariner High School, and Adi (Lisa) Rakuro is entering her sophomore year of college. Both Elizabeth and Lisa are attending Everett Community College. They also will play varsity soccer when the postponed season begins in spring 2021.

The Washington State Legends of Soccer scholarship committee reviewed applications and made the determination. The WSLS/AH Scholarship Fund was established thanks to the contributions of generous donors like you, first at our 2019 Night with Alan Hinton & Friends and with many renewing their gift again this past year.

A college education can be a life-changing opportunity for our youth, and this is one of the pillars of our WA Legends mission, to inspire our community to give back and provide new opportunities to others through this great game. Elizabeth and Lisa have overcome many challenges to become the first in their respective families to attend college. Elizabeth plans to major in engineering, and Lisa is pursuing a degree in criminal justice.
