2022 Tom Jones Scholarship Recipient

Carla Betancourt

My name is Carla Betancourt and I am from Afton, Virginia. I completed my Bachelors of Science in Education in Kinesiology at the University of Virginia. I will be continuing my studies at UVA and will be starting the Masters of Science in Athletic Training this June! During my undergraduate career, I was a manager for the Virginia Women’s Volleyball Team, Treasurer and current President of The Kinesiology Club, and involved in many other organizations. With my athletic training degree, my goal is to go the non-traditional route and work within the performing arts such as Cirque du Soleil, Broadway, Drum Corps International or other performing groups. I am excited for what the future holds and beyond blessed and thankful to be the recipient of the VATA Tom Jones Scholarship.
