Team DC's 2009 scholarship winner

New, comment

Washington DC's gay Metro Weekly had a nice article last week about the recipient of Team DC's 2009 student-athlete scholarship. In its second year, the scholarship goes to a self-identified gay athlete. This year's winner was swimmer and tennis player Clayton Miller (right, with one of last year's winners Michael Hull) from Wakefield High School. According to Metro Weekly:

The 18-year-old was "scared and apprehensive" to accept the $1,500 scholarship from Team DC because he's still in the process of coming out to friends and family. "But if this does anyone good, or motivates anyone...then that outweighs any negatives that it might have."

You can find both Miller and Hull on the campus of Virginia Tech this year.
