BIO-CAT’s 4th Annual Scholarship Winner

Olga Finley - Huffman Scholarship WinnerBIO-CAT recently awarded the Brian M. Huffman Memorial Scholarship to Olga Findley. In the Fall, Olga plans to attend Radford University and study Interior Design. She’s passionate about art and her desire to help people has led her to want to become an interior designer.

Olga is originally from the Ukraine and came to the US six years ago. Before coming to the US, she had recently graduated from the 9th grade and was headed to a trade school to become a cook. She readily admits that cooking is not her forte but that was her only option in the Ukraine. It wasn’t long after arriving in the US as an exchange student that her host family fell in love with her and adopted her.

Olga participated in a variety of sports and extracurricular activities while in high school. She played on the varsity volleyball, soccer, field and track teams. She was a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes all three years of high school. Olga participated in the French Club for several years and helped create the 2017 yearbook. She joined the National Art Honor Society, invitation only, and was the 1st runner up in the Miss Louisa pageant. Olga has volunteered her time in a variety of community service projects for the women’s shelter, women’s prison ministry and at an orphanage in the Ukraine. Every summer she has worked in the family business at Prospect Hill Plantation Inn.

BIO-CAT is very pleased to grant Olga Findley the $5,000 Brian M. Huffman Scholarship.
