Taiana Sanft, 2014 Good Feet Scholarship Winner & Eric Kaplan, president Colorado Good Feet
Online PR News – 16-July-2014 – Denver, CO – TAIANA SANFT is the 2014 recipient of the annual Denver Good Feet Scholarship. The scholarship will provide her with $1,000 to pursue a mechanical engineering degree at the University of Colorado-Denver in the fall.
Colorado Good Feet has been a staunch supporter of Goodwill industries for the last nine years. The Colorado Good Feet stores collect used shoes, give customers donating the shoes a discount on their purchase, and then donate the shoes to Goodwill for recycling or distribution in the Denver community.
In their work with Goodwill, Colorado Good Feet has developed a scholarship fund for Goodwill recommended students. Eric Kaplan, president of Colorado Good Feet, along with a scholarship committee, reviews the students recommended by Goodwill Denver, and awards an annual scholarship to the most deserving student.
This year the honor goes to Taiana Sanft
Taiana Sanft is a vivacious and inspirational young woman. Her parents moved the Sanft family to the United States six years ago from the Kingdom of Tonga.
Taiana has proven to be a true leader and team-player through her involvement in leadership groups such as Goodwill’s Student Advisory Council. She rarely missed a meeting and participated in as many community-service projects as she could, constantly bringing that positive attitude with her. She has such an inspiring way of encouraging and engaging others, and has proven to be a great asset to everything she is involved in.
She’s busy with extra-curricular activities including sports (basketball & volleyball), the National Honor Society, and is co-founder of an all-female a capella group at Hinkley High School, which performed for Goodwill Industries of Denver’s Annual Luncheon this past spring.
Taiana is a first generation college student, and plans to attend University of Colorado-Denver in the fall to study mechanical engineering.
