USTA Foundation, the national charitable foundation of the United States Tennis Association (USTA), today announced that Ryan Jenne of Mill Spring, who recently graduated from Foothills Christian School, has been named a recipient of the $10,000 Pro Tennis Management (PTM) Scholarship. This past spring, the USTA Foundation granted 31 high school students a variety of college scholarships, totaling $300,000.
In 2015, the USTA Foundation developed the Professional Tennis Management Scholarship targeting High School seniors who exhibit a passion for tennis and plan on attending one of six colleges currently offering a PTM program.
“The USTA Foundation is committed to supporting the educational endeavors of students, and proud to award these scholarships to deserving individuals who have shown academic excellence and commitment to community service,” said Dan Faber, executive director, USTA Foundation. “We congratulate this year’s winners on taking the next step toward higher education while using tennis as their conduit.”
Jenne has competed in Junior USTA tournaments since 2009 and his current NC Boys 18 ranking is 54. In addition to tennis, Jenne participated in Polk County Recreational baseball, soccer and basketball. This fall, he will attend Methodist University with an interest in professional tennis management.
