Dustin Curtis Memorial Scholarship to be awarded tonight

Head out to the Kuna High School baseball diamond at 5 p.m. today for a special presentation of the first awarding of the Dustin Curtis Memorial Scholarship.
The Kuna varsity baseball team is playing Columbia today, and it's Senior Night, honoring the team's seniors. I was tremendously honored to serve on the committee that selected this year's winner. With a great group of seniors, it was not an easy decision.
I had the privilege of covering Dustin Curtis when he was the starting catcher on the varsity team his junior year in 2007. He was a standout on the team, a leader who was always helping his teammates and younger players.
It was tragic news to report that summer when Dustin was killed in a car accident. I think this memorial scholarship is a great way to honor his memory.
