Dana, Rick & Sarah

One of our longest running partnerships, Rick and Sarah have been mentors to Dana for 9 years. Their longevity and accomplishments are a testament to the respect, support and love they’ve developed together. It has led to an amazing story.

Dana is driven. Goal oriented. You could say she’s hardly in need of mentoring. However she will be the first to tell you that her bond with Rick and Sarah kept her steadily on track to excel — something she’s doing now with a full scholarship to college and holding a 4.0 GPA.

With school paid for, Dana has no need for Marathon Scholar funds, and wants them to instead go to another child who needs them. That footnote alone says a lot about how far this gifted young woman will go — and the amazing couple who saw her potential all along.
