Multi-sport athlete Kellen Shelley is one of two Oregon high school athletes receiving a $1,000 Moda Health Scholarship for 2017-18.
Kelly Foster of the Oregon School Activities Association made the announcement to the Eagle on Friday.
Shelley attended Grant Union High School where he participated in football, basketball and golf. He recently transferred to Tillamook High School where he will be a junior this fall.
Shelley received the Moda Health Player of the Game award during the 2A Basketball State Championship in Pendleton. As a recipient of that award, Shelley was given a scholarship application.
Outside of sports and school, Shelley participates in FFA which holds annual can food drives, camp clean-ups and firewood cutting for the elderly.
The OSAA press release states Shelley is driven by his passion to serve and to provide leadership in his school and community.
Randal Hennen, a Grant Union High School biology teacher, said in the release, “Kellen would be one to stand and speak up for what is morally and ethically right, even in the face of opposition.”
