Shaw's Jalin Thomas wins leadership grant

July 2, 2013 

Shaw High's Jalin Thomas won a National Athleadership Grant sponsored by NCSA Athletic Recruiting and the NFL Player's Association.

The grant is awarded to student-athletes who qualify based on leadership in their community, academic achievement, athletics and a required essay. The grant is awarded to only a handful of student-athletes throughout the country in all sports.

As a result of his selection, NCSA Athletic Recruiting will work with Thomas and his family throughout his high school career and assist him in finding a collegiate institution that best matches him academically and athletically.
