2014 Smart Choices Scholarship Winners

Scholarship winners Drew Wallen and Jenna Moser on KJR with Jason Puckett:
 

Drew Wallen
AUBURN RIVERSIDE HS
Jenna Moser
COLTON HS

Drew competed in football and basketball at Auburn Riverside High School, earning a total of six varsity letters for the Ravens.  As a senior football player, he was voted team captain and “most inspirational” by his peers, while earning honors such as Northwest Elite’s Breakout Player of the Year, Auburn Riverside Iron Man Award, SPSL 4A Defensive Back of the Year and First Team All Defense.  He also set the Auburn Riverside High School most receiving yards in a game record with 244. 

Drew was able to play an integral role in turning the football program around.  After going 1-9 as a team during his junior year, he helped lead the Ravens to a league championship during his senior season, the first for Auburn Riverside.

Described by his coaches and teammates as a hardworking, coachable, motivated, mentally and physically tough leader, Drew has also shown a deep commitment to his education. While balancing his school work with athletics, clubs, community service and leadership positions, Drew was able to maintain a 3.98 GPA while serving as class president his freshman through junior years and serving as ASB President his senior year.  He was also involved in campaigns to stop bullying, and was the student leader behind the “Save it Seattle, Dont Text and Drive Campaign” that garnered statewide attention and brought former Seahawk Golden Tate to Auburn Riverside. Drew’s accomplishments expand beyond the scope of athletics and academics, as he is a member of numerous community groups. 

Drew’s involvement with food drives, youth sports camps, church programs and relief efforts has shown his excellence in leadership within his community.  His proudest achievement was his work with the Upward Basketball League, spending countless hours volunteering as a basketball referee, fostering teamwork, fair play, sportsmanship and other core values in young athletes.  He has worked with this program for six years and each year has taken on a bigger role. 

Drew will continue his education at Central Washington University, where he will become a member of the Wildcat football team.  He plans to pursue a career in broadcast journalism.

Jenna participated in four years of volleyball, basketball, softball and music at Colton High School, earning a total of 12 varsity letters throughout her high school career. Jenna competed in nine state championship games, earning four basketball State Championships and three softball State Championships.

In addition to the four basketball State Championships, Jenna was selected as the Washington Interscholastic Basketball Coaches Association Athlete of the Year (WIBCA) (2014), the Associated Press (AP) 1B Player of the Year (2014), and was selected to the All-State team her sophomore through senior seasons. Moser was recognized as a WIAA/Seattle Times Athlete of the Week twice, most recently for her performance in the 1B State championships at the Spokane Arena, where she averaged 20.7 points, 9 rebounds, 6.7 steals, and 3.3 assists per game. Her performance led the Wildcats to their sixth straight title.  Jenna finished her basketball career with 1,477 points and a 102-3 record. 

While balancing three sports and many other extracurricular activities Jenna was able to maintain a 4.0 GPA, win three academic State Championships with her teams, and hold the position of ASB President during her senior year.  She was also a part of the National Honor Society and Future Farmers of America (FFA). 

Jenna has also committed herself to the betterment of her community. As a member of the Honor Flight Committee, she helped raise over $1,500 in order to raise awareness and support for those who served our country, which allowed two local veterans to participate in an honor flight to Washington, D.C.

Jenna will continue her education at the University of Washington, where she plans to pursue a career in architecture.
