THE SCOTT RHOADS MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT
Will be the last Friday in June this year, the day before our  50th reunion at Lake Wilderness Golf Course, Maple Valley. Contact  Jim Binder at jbb@propelineinsurance.com or call 206-676-4204 for info on how to participate or lend your support to this worthy foundation that provides 3 sizeable, yearly, scholarships for both male and female local high school athletes.
HELP MAKE THIS YEAR'S TOURNAMENT ANOTHER HUGE SUCCESS!!
Our classmate Scott Rhoads and his wife Marit Thomas (also SHS'65) were killed in the 1996 crash of TWA flight 800 off the coast of Long Island. Marit, a TWA attendant, was working on the Paris bound flight. They were going to take a quick 3 day holiday in Paris before school started. Scott was the varsity wrestling coach at Newport High for 15 years.
At the time of his death, he was also the football team's linebacker coach and the girl's varsity softball coach. Scott was also very active in local Little League and youth football associations over the years.
A group of Scott's friends and his daughter and son have established a foundation to help local graduating seniors with college tuition. The goal of the Rhoads foundation is to increase the number and amount of scholarships awarded each year. Proceeds from this golf tournament are managed to establish an endowment fund to perpetuate Scott's memory.

WE WANT YOU ... to participate in any way that you can for this worthy cause,
and to keep alive Scott's passion for helping kids fulfill their athletic dreams.
