Whatcom County Student Athlete Scholarshi


The Whatcom County Student Athlete Scholarship was created by Jeff Reinert (former Sehome High School basketball player and current Head Basketball Coach, and Director of International Relations, at Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Rancho Santa Margarita, California) for the advancement of education for Whatcom County students. The Scholarship awards two students a year with a five thousand dollar scholarship to be used at any university or school the students select. Our fund-raising golf tournament celebrated its last year in the summer of 2013, finalizing our goal of having enough funds to carry the scholarships forward for years to come.
Todd Curran was someone who typifies the spirit of this scholarship. Todd attended Sehome High School from 1979 – 1981 and participated in basketball, football, and track and field. An excellent student and athlete, Todd was a three year letterman for the Mariners, graduating with a 3.9 G.P.A. Todd attended the University of Washington and graduated with a chemical engineering degree in 1986. Todd was married in 1993. He was 32 years old when cancer was diagnosed in November of that year. He loved to learn and looked forward sharing that with his only child, a daughter, born in 1994. In April of 1995, while living in Florida, Todd died of a brain tumor.
His memory lives on and is a fine example of what this scholarship is all about. Todd was a first class individual who represented himself, his family, and his school admirably. He cared about people and went out of his way to help those in need. The Whatcom County Student Athlete Scholarship is pleased to dedicate this scholarship to the memory of TODD CURRAN.
