Greg Louganis Endorses GLBTQ Online High School, launches scholarship fund


Former Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis has endorsed GLBTQ Online High School with the launch of the Greg Louganis Scholarship Fund!

“When I heard about GLBTQ Online High School, I knew that was a team I wanted to be a part of,” said Louganis. “This unique school goes beyond eliminating the damaging experiences that some schools provide glbtq students. It also connects queer and questioning youth and their parents to supportive peers and community resources around the country. With all that support, students can concentrate on a high quality, college-prep education that will serve them well.”

Dave Glick, Executive Director of GLBTQ Online High School, said, “We’re thrilled to have Greg on board! As a highly successful gay man, he sets a wonderful example for our students. He has overcome numerous challenges to accomplish great things in several widely differing fields. We hope to help our students develop the versatility and resilience that Greg exemplifies.”

Louganis will be helping to promote the school and build the Greg Louganis Scholarship Fund, which will be funded by private donations. The Louganis scholarships will be available to students who could not otherwise afford to attend the private, nationwide school.  “GLBTQ Online High School is a fantastic new opportunity for queer and questioning youth nationwide. This school is sure to produce the brilliant stars of tomorrow from students with so many different backgrounds,” Greg stated. “However, there are many youth who cannot afford this important opportunity without assistance. Please join me in supporting GLBTQ Online High School with a donation to the Greg Louganis Scholarship Fund. Together we can truly change lives!”

GLBTQ Online High School will manage all aspects of the scholarship fund. Students will be able to apply for scholarship support in conjunction with their application to the school.

Donations can be made by credit card via the school website, http://www.glbtqonlinehighschool.com, or by sending a check payable to GLBTQ Online High School with “Greg Louganis Scholarship Fund” in the memo line. Send to:
