ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
Inspired by Austin Denton, who taught us all to Seize the Moment! The Austin Denton Foundation was established in 2021 in Albuquerque, NM. Our mission is to raise funds & awareness for organizations that serve, support, and create opportunities for individuals.
The Austin Denton Foundation will be sponsoring two Memorial Scholarships through the NMAA Foundation!
The ESPN Radio 101.7 The TEAM Internship will be offered to students by Desert Greens Equipment and The Austin Denton Foundation. Eligible applicants must be a student between the ages of 16-22. The internship will run January 2023 through March 2023 and is for a motivated student with an interest in the broadcasting industry. If selected, the student will shadow producers & broadcasters along with opportunities to attend remote events and be a part of the crew that broadcasts the NMAA State Basketball games in March. The student must be able to attend one (1) three hour commitment per week and have transportation to all commitments. A $500 stipend will be offered to the student upon successful completion of the internship.
Austin graduated from La Cueva High School in 2019 and was headed to the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication at Arizona State University. Our goal is to provide scholarships to students that share his determination and want to Seize the Moment.
Austin had a love for sports and found a way to be involved as well as follow his dreams. Our goal is to help initiate sports journalism/broadcasting opportunities and make them more accessible to students.
Austin was a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for almost his entire life. Not only did St. Jude treat him for cancer, they also gave him life changing opportunities. Our goal is to support hospitals & other organizations that serve, support, and create
opportunities for individuals.
“For me, life’s moments…every moment counts so you got to Seize the Moment”
