2019 Thomas Soldan Healthy Communities Scholarship
Thomas Soldan, Attorney at Law is an avid trail runner, a local-sports team supporter, and is passionate about the development of healthy communities. Through the use of sustainable resources and food-access programs, cities and counties across the country are able to provide nutrition and activities to foster vibrant and growing communities. Uniquely motivated people are key to important local health initiatives like access to clean water or opportunities in community-level sports and outdoor events, a fact that Mr. Soldan recognizes.
As a former collegiate baseball player who maintains an active passion for the game, he has personally devoted ample time and energy into these issues, and constantly strives to create pathways for others to do the same. Mr. Soldan is investing in the future and has offered a scholarship of $1,000 to any student in a post-secondary education seeking means to encourage sustainable and local health-initiatives in his or her own community.
