About Rhylee Fielding Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship program is named after Rhylee Fielding, who over ten years ago worked with Woodland Heights Elementary to launch the Girls on the Run program there. With a passion for fitness and female leadership, Rhylee dedicated her time to inspire her daughters and their peers to be joyful, healthy, and confident!
In 2017, Rhylee lost her battle with cancer. Girls on the Run of the Greater Piedmont created this scholarship to honor her and recognize alumni who have followed in her footsteps to serve as a role model in our community.
