amyah-boydDear Editor,

My name is Amyah Boyd and I am excited to announce that I was invited to represent Mineral County, Nevada to compete in Track and Field in Australia for the 29th Annual Down Under Sports Tournament in 2017.

I am a sophomore at MCHS with a 3.8 GPA. I moved to Hawthorne with my mom in 2013 and I instantly became involved in sports. In the past three years I have participated in track and field, basketball, softball, volleyball and cheerleading. I have done my best to excel in every sport.  I am also involved in Gear Up, FCCLA and I volunteer my time helping my mom, Dianna Fisher, with various projects at CAHS. I am looking for sponsors to make donations towards the cost of competing down under. A major source of funds comes through voluntary contributions of family, friends and business sponsors.

My fundraising goal is $5,310. Your sponsorship will be a very important part of fundraising for me and my team. Your donation will help me fulfill this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Every sponsor will receive one or more chances to win an all-expense paid trip to Australia and Hawaii and/or a five day cruise.

To donate you can contact Fisher or Brian Dillard at 775-316-2283 or you can donate directly to for Amyah Boyd. Down Under Sports will match 70 percent of our donations up to $1,000 up until Nov. 21.

Thank you.

Amayah Boyd
