On Thursday, Chandler's Jalen Milligan received a $20,000 scholarship through the Footlocker Scholar Athletes Program. Milligan is a multi-sport athlete, competing in track, softball and dance. She is also active in the community, helping people gain access to free eye exams, volunteering at a transitional home for women and organizing free track clinics.
Milligan started the Exchange Zone program, where people donate new or used sports equipment to give to kids who can't afford it.
In the fall, Milligan will attend Wichita State University, where she plans to study exercise science.
In its sixth year, The Footlocker Scholar Athletes program honors 20 outstanding student athletes a year with a $20,000 scholarship for demonstrating academic excellence and exemplifying strong leadership skills both in sports and within their communities.
