Santa Fe Christian students earn full rides to USCMay 13, 2010
Outstanding academic and athletic performances have opened the doors at the University of Southern California for two Santa Fe Christian students: Jenna Puterbaugh and Olivia Gardner as each have accepted full scholarships to one of the nation’s leading private research universities.Puterbaugh, one of the top sprinters in California, is the current state champion in the 55 meters and recent winner of the 100- and 200-
meter events at the elite Arcadia Invitational, will be attending USC on an athletic scholarship. Jenna commented: “I chose USC because I enjoyed the atmosphere and the pride that I felt all the students had for their school. After having been educated at Santa Fe Christian my entire life, I am ready to test my faith at a secular school and am confident that USC will allow me to excel spiritually, athletically and academically.”
Olivia, a junior at Santa Fe, is graduating a year early to begin her journey at USC embarking on an M.D./Ph.D. track majoring in biochemistry. Olivia noted: “Santa Fe recognized my desire to get an early start on my college career which will involve years of study. I was able to fulfill the school’s chemistry requirement by taking summer classes through John Hopkins University’s Center for Talented Youth. With my college counselor’s encouragement I was able to double up on math and English classes to reach my goal.” An exceptional student, Olivia was awarded a Trustee Scholarship by USC and accepted into the Thematic Options Program as well as the Freshman Science Honors Program.
