New scholarship in Kuna named in honor of Dustin Curtis
The family of Dustin Curtis, along with Kuna American Legion Baseball, is proud to announce the creation of a scholarship in his name. 2011 will be the first year this scholarship is offered with the hopes that it may continue and possibly expand in the future. The scholarship of $500 will be offered this year to a current graduating senior of Kuna High on the baseball team who is planning on continuing their education.
Applications and information can be found online at www.kunabaseball.com. Anyone wishing to comment or contribute can contact representatives also at the website.
The 2011 deadline for applications will be April 20. The scholarship is meant to recognize young men who love the game of baseball and play with dignity and respect for their fellow teammates and competitors on and off the field, as Dustin exemplified.
Dustin was a standout baseball player at Kuna and was the starting catcher on the varsity team his junior year. His life was cut short by a car accident the summer after his junior year of high school.
