Ana Tsiros Receives LPGA Foundation's Marilynn Smith Scholarship

Congratulations most certainly go to Ana Tsiros from Asheville High School's Class of 2019! The student-athlete was named both WMAC's individual champion and conference player of the year. She too won the AAA State Championship in Women's Golf with rounds of 70 and 74.

And, yesterday, the LPGA Foundation announced that Tsiros is one of 30 high school graduates selected to receive this year’s Marilynn Smith Scholarship.

The Marilynn Smith Scholarship, named in honor of one of the LPGA’s 13 founding members, is awarded to high school seniors who plan to play golf at an accredited college or university in the United States. Each of the 2019 recipients will receive a $5,000 scholarship.

This fall, Tsiros will be attending James Madison University.
She plans to major in biology before going on to dental school and specializing in endodontics, all while playing golf for the Dukes of JMU.
