NSCAA Women's Committee Charlotte Moran Scholarship
The NSCAA Women's Committee recognizes Heather Zurburg as the recipient of the 2015 Charlotte Moran Memorial Scholarship. This award was created to honor the legacy of our dear Charlotte Moran who lost her battle to pancreatic cancer in May 2009 after heroically battling the disease for nearly two years. It is presented annually to an individual dedicated to the growth and development of girls and women in soccer.
This year's winner, Heather Zurburg, is currently working on her PhD at Florida State University and has worked with young players for much of her career. A former goalkeeper, Heather has been on USYS Region III Girls Olympic Development Program staff since 2010 and the Florida Youth Soccer Association Olympic Development Program Staff since 2008. Along with her participation in the ODP organizations, Heather has worked the FSU Soccer Camps, No. 1 Soccer Camps, and the MLS Red Bull Developmental Camps.
"I am beyond flattered to be receiving the Charlotte Moran Memorial Scholarship. Thank you to the NSCAA for making this opportunity possible" Heather said. "I hope that I can continue to demonstrate what Charlotte dedicated her life to, as well as, continue to be the type of coach to my players that I wanted as I was developing as a player myself" she added. Heather is planning on using the scholarship to attend the NSCAA Advanced National license.
