Northern Rockies Physical Therapy Scholarship Awarded to Sentinel Senior

Northern Rockies Physical Therapy is proud to announce Sentinel High School graduate Ryan Nagel as the 2014 Northern Rockies Physical Therapy Scholarship recipient.

As a local business, NRPT understands the importance of giving back to the community. With many graduates, including Nagel, planning to attend colleges and universities in the fall, Northern Rockies Physical Therapy provides a $1,000 scholarship to one outstanding student through its scholarship program.

10456252_300097046821439_219572598_nAs an advocate for higher education, the Northern Rockies Physical Therapy Scholarship Program has been established to award a local incoming college freshman or sophomore with two semesters of financial support. Its scholarship program was established to recognize and award an individual’s academic excellence, leadership and service.

Supporting Missoula’s future leaders is just one way Northern Rockies Physical Therapy is giving back.

Nagel, who overcame two major injuries to become a varsity athlete while maintaining a 3.97 GPA, is the kind of future leader NRPT is proud to support.

Not only was Nagel a multi-sport athlete, he was a member of Sentinel’s National Honors Society and spent many hours mentoring area youth as a baseball coach and church member. He earned several letters as a member of Sentinel’s varsity football team even after coming to the school as a new student his freshman year.

“Against all odds,” Nagle wrote in his application for the N.R.P.T. scholarship, “sophomore through senior years I was able to make the varsity football team and earn many meaningful awards for my leadership and play. It is a gift to know what you want and then work toward seeing your dream realized.”

Northern Rockies Physical Therapy is proud that its scholarship will support Nagel as he attends Montana State University to pursue a degree in engineering.
