Rising Stars Gymnastics has a long tradition of members earning college gymnastics scholarships. We would like to recognize them all here, and will start with our most recent. Congratulations to all recipients! For younger gymnasts this demonstrates the potential reward for you (and your parents!) for continuing hard work in the gym every day.
