Scott W. Hagen Memorial Scholarship

“Live a Lifetime Full of Greatness”

These words were a favourite expression of our scholarship honouree Scott Hagen. Scott conducted his life with others in mind, always available to help, always willing to support in anyway required. Kind, caring, devoted, and generous Scott was all of this and more. As a husband, father, colleague, or friend he always saw the best in people and inspired those around him to be their best in whatever they were trying to accomplish. A lover of all things baseball. Scott enjoyed all aspects of the game and contributed to the sport by volunteering in numerous roles over the years. His favourite pastime was spending time at the diamond watching any one of his three children playing the game that he loved. The goal of this scholarship is to provide assistance to any athlete to help them pursue their passion for their sport in a post secondary environment. The beneficiary of the scholarship should not only be a player but also have contributed by giving back to the sport in a volunteer role exhibiting the same values and characteristics that made Scott the incredible individual that he was.
