February 1, 2023 - Amerie Nordberg Memorial Scholarship for Graduating Seniors
Pacific Swimming is proud to announce an annual scholarship in the name of Amerie Nordberg. Amerie was a talented athlete from Santa Rosa that grew up swimming in Pacific Swimming. She later swam for the University of California at Irvine and was team captain, holding several Top 10 records there: the 100 and 200 breaststroke and relay records in the 200 freestyle and 200 and 400 medley relay. This scholarship was created to honor Amerie and is funded by a generous gift from the Nordberg family to commemorate the life of their daughter. Click for more details and the link to apply.
