Jordan Weber of Groveland, a Sport and Exercise Science student, was presented with the Patrick Roche Memorial Scholarship Award this week at the UCF South Lake Campus.
The scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Patrick Roche, a graduate of Sport and Fitness, who exemplified the core values of the program (now the Sport and Exercise Science program) while pursuing his passion despite medical and physical challenges. Also in attendance were Bob and Andrea Roche, parents of the scholarship’s namesake.
Also at the Clermont campus on Tuesday, proceeds from the recent 4th annual UCF Charity Challenge 5K race were presented to two organizations.
Nancy Sawyer, senior vice president in charge of programs for Special Olympics Florida, was presented with $4,000, and Jeffrey Muddell, vice president of the Arnold Palmer Medical Center Foundation, was presented with $3,000.
The money was raised April 14 when students from the Sport and Exercise Science program in South Lake hosted the race that drew 198 participants.
