Duman Award Winner: Annabelle Bradley

Congratulations to our 2022 Duman Award winner, Annabelle Bradley from Western Christian School!

Each year we ask SALT coaches from participating schools to nominate one student they feel is a behind-the-scenes hero and shows extraordinary kindness to their teammates. This year’s Duman Award winner stood out among the nominees. Here is what Annabelle’s coach had to say about her…

“Throughout the year Annabelle has shown great perseverance, creativity, and a good attitude. She has demonstrated what it looks like to be a contributing member of a team by her diligence in handling the content of the books she was responsible to read. Her quality work has been an excellent example for the rest of her team and inspiring for other members of the SALT teams. She has answered more questions from the book of James than any other student at our school. Along with her gentle, quiet spirit, Annabelle’s character has been noteworthy and honoring to the Lord.”

The Duman Award was established as a way to honor our beloved teacher Trisha Duman who passed away in 2018. Trisha was a huge supporter of SALT and served on our board. She was definitely one of the behind-the-scenes heroes for us as we were getting the program up and running. Trisha had many amazing characteristics, but she was best known for her kindness.

“He always has the biggest smile on his face and is always encouraging to not just his teammates but to everyone around him. He is everyone’s friend! I’m very proud of how he has kept up our group’s morale and kept the teams’ eyes focused on what is important which is always doing our best and doing it for the Lord!”
