Scholarship Background and Intent

Amber attended Byron schools and graduated from Byron High School in 2001. While in school, Amber was involved in cheerleading and track. She was on the high school cheerleading squad and participated on a competitive cheerleading squad that competed on a National level. Her hard work and competitive drive allowed her to qualify for State in the long jump, a goal she had set during her junior year at Byron. Amber continued her education at the University of Iowa. She joined the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, was very active in the sorority and made many friends. Amber was also a cheerleader for the Iowa Hawkeyes and worked for the University’s sports marketing department. One of the highlights for her was working with Tom Arnold when “The Best Damned Sport Show Period” came to an Iowa football game.

In March of 2003 Amber was diagnosed with an atypical T-cell Lymphoma. She went through intensive chemotherapy at the University of Iowa Medical Center. While there she won the hearts of the staff with her positive attitude. Amber passed away on September 4th, 2003.

Amber was an involved athlete with a positive attitude that made a lasting impression on everyone she met. The intent of this scholarship is to support a student who is hardworking, has a competitive edge, and who works to achieve their athletic goals just like she did.
