BACKGROUND

The Zachary Ruble Memorial Scholarship program was established by Jay and Paula Ruble in memory of their son, who passed away unexpectedly in April of 2009.  An honor student at the University of Utah, Zachary had an intense passion for protecting the environment, and practiced conservation and recycling.  During most of his senior year in high school, he rode his bicycle to school in an attempt to encourage others to conserve. He was an Eagle Scout, and an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed rock climbing, backpacking, snow skiing, and water sports.  A 2008 honors graduate of Mason County High School, Zachary maintained a 4.0 grade point average, while still finding the time to play on the school's soccer and tennis teams, and to participate in community service projects.

ZACHARY RUBLE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
Every effort is made to finalize the selection of recipients by the end of May, but delays are often unavoidable due to the nature of the selection process.

The amount of the award may vary from year to year.  For the 2017-2018 school year, four scholarships will be awarded, at a value of $1,000 each.  The scholarship may be renewed for up to three additional years, provided the recipient continues to meet the eligibility requirements.

COMMUNITY SERVICE REQUIREMENT (For Recipients, Only)

Once selected, scholarship recipients must complete 10 hours of volunteer community service each year, as a condition of receiving a scholarship, and as a requirement for reapplying to renew a scholarship for additional years.  See the report form and instructions for more information about this requirement.
