David Heller Memorial Scholarship

David had a passion for life and particularly the game of basketball. We have chosen to honor David’s memory by recognizing other youth that possess the same passion and spirit for life. David had an incredible work ethic both on and off the court. His enlarged heart was not just a physical ailment – he had the capacity to love, serve and help others in need. He wore a smile each and every day, taking time to treat all with respect. He did not stress about the future but took advantage of living in the moment, getting the most out of life.

We give you an opportunity to dream as David did. Reach for the stars and embrace life as it comes to you.

One or more $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually to graduating seniors with a minimum GPA of 3.25 who plan to attend college or university in the fall. Applicants must attend high school in Oregon or Washington.
