The Lake St. Louis Water Ski Club awards scholarships for high school seniors who plan to continue the sport of water skiing in college. The scholarship is sponsored by First State Bank of St. Charles – Lake St. Louis Branch. This year’s recipient of the scholarship is Madison Krick. Madison has been active in the club for 10 years. She began skiing when she was four years old. This sport has truly been a family sport for Madison as her family has been an active ski club family for three generations. Her grandparents and parents were instrumental in helping to build the club through the years. Madison has participated in many different acts including the 3 Event team, the Arch Rivals competition team, and Home Show ballet, pyramids, duos, around the boat, and swivel. Madison plans to continue her water ski career at the collegiate level at University of Missouri – Columbia.
Madison said, “Being a part of the ski team allowed for me to build relationships and forever friendships that will last a lifetime. I am excited about my new journey at Mizzou in the fall and being a part of their water ski team. Skiing has taught me to work hard towards a goal and have determination with the mindset of never giving up. I’d like to thank the Lake St. Louis Ski Team who gave me all these wonderful memories and who have always been there for my family.
