Scott Van Coevern
Memorial Scholarship Award
Funded by Green Mountain Junior Baseball Association
Scott participated in baseball for eleven years and really played for the “love of the game”. For two years, he played on Green Mountain High School’s baseball team. Being a natural athlete, Scott could play any position on the field. While employed by Jefferson County Baseball Association, Scott worked in field maintenance for spring, summer and fall baseball. He also served as umpire for many little league baseball games. Scott’s adventurous spirit and contagious smile were an inspiration to all of his friends.
Scott’s adventures also led him to the great outdoors where he once took a 2,000 mile motorcycle trip to Yellowstone National Park with his family and friends. He loved many sports that Colorado offered and often you would find him snow and water skiing, jet skiing or mountain biking. It was his love for the great outdoors that led him to Grand Lake, Colorado, where he perished in a snowmobile accident on January 20, 1997.
Each year in Scott’s memory the Green Mountain Junior Baseball Association sponsors the Scott VanCoevern Memorial Baseball Tournament. This year GMJBA is offering two scholarships to Green Mountain High School Senior applicants. The scholarships will be awarded to the senior(s) who excels either “ATHLETICALLY” or “ACADEMICALLY”.
