LEKI is proud to announce 15-year-old Cody Jarels from Vermont as the winner of the 2019 LEKI Full Ride Scholarship to the Ligety-Weibrecht Ski Camp. Jarels has been ski racing since he was 13 years old and will race with his school team at St. Johnsbury Academy next season.
While there were so many great and worthy applicants, Jarels stood out as the third annual recipient of the LEKI Full Ride Scholarship to Ligety-Weibrecht Ski Camp. Not only is he a ski instructor for youngsters just starting out on the slopes, but he is also a volunteer firefighter and coaches youth soccer in his community.
“What struck me about Cody was his commitment to helping out in his community and his passion for continuing ski racing despite obstacles,” said Greg Wozer, VP LEKI USA. “We wish Cody the best of luck at camp this summer and support his continued training, education, and service to others.”
The scholarship provides Jarels with an all-expenses paid trip where he will train with premier-level coaches at the Ligety-Weibrecht Ski Camp at Mt. Hood, Oregon, one of the top summer training locations in the country. He will also be fully equipped with new LEKI race gear for the upcoming race season.
“I can’t thank you enough, this is definitely a dream come true and I look forward to this amazing opportunity,” said Jarels.
