Ethan Weiser was selected as the SMX Professional's Choice Air Ride Student Athlete of the Month for March 2008. Ethan is a 17 year old junior at Arlington High School. Ethan competes in the Oregon High School Rodeo Association with the Columbia Basin Rodeo Club and is the current reigning high school bull riding champion.
The program rewards one girl and one boy each month with a Professional's Choice Air Ride Saddle Pad and qualifies each monthly winner for two $1,000 scholarships (one boys and one girls) to be awarded at the end of the rodeo season. To be eligible for the honor, students must submit an application to the NHSRA national office in Denver. The application includes questions about the extracurricular activities, volunteerism and goals; each applicant must also submit a letter of recommendation as well as an essay. Winners are featured each month in the NHSRA Times. Scholarship winners are announced each year at the National High School Finals Rodeo to be held in Farmington, NM in July of this year.
