Tayva McKinney IHSAA Interscholastic Star Scholarship Finalist

Please join us in congratulating Potlatch High School Junior, Tayva McKinney on being selected as a finalist for the Idaho High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) Interscholastic Star Scholarship for 1A-D1!  According to the IHSAA website, "The Interscholastic Star scholarship program is sponsored by the Idaho High School Activities Association and was established in 1992 to recognize and reward outstanding students who participate in high school athletic and non-athletic activities.  Applicants must be Juniors who participate or have participated in at least one IHSAA-sponsored sport and one IHSAA sponsored activity. IHSAA-sponsored activities are: cheerleading, dance, drama, speech, debate, vocal music and instrumental music. These activities must be extracurricular and should be performance-based. Class-only participation will not be considered. Students from 1A and 2A schools may also count FFA and/or student government."

A committee from IHSAA will interview Tayva on Monday, May 9th. Six finalists will be selected as 2021-2022 Interscholastic Stars on May 27th!

Being selected as a finalist is a prestigious honor, and we believe Tayva embodies the characteristics of this award. Tayva is an honor roll student who has excelled in the classroom while competing in a variety of extracurricular activities, including, but not limited to volleyball, basketball, softball, FFA, BPA, National Honor Society, and the Better Days Club. Tayva is the Junior Class President and served as the team captain for the varsity basketball team. Furthermore, Tayva is very active within her community. Tayva aided the community of Potlatch, as well as the surrounding communities, by volunteering at our local "National Night Out" (an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie). In addition, she helps sterilize and wash emergency vehicles for our local fire department and ambulance, assists with the local food truck to help provide food to those in need, and assists with a fundraising dinner to benefit the Princeton Community Center. 

We are honored to have Tayva representing Potlatch Jr-Sr High School and wish her the best of luck! Congratulations!
