Price Family Scholarship in Memory of Thomas M. Price

The application deadline for this scholarship was January 9, 2014.

This scholarship was established by Sue Holder Price in memory of her husband Thomas M. Price. As an involved parent, Tom saw the importance of team sports in young lives. His son Bill Price swam for the West Lafayette White Sharks Swim Team for 10 years and for West Lafayette High School for four years. Tom viewed swimming as a character building sport believing in the values of perseverance, hard work, self-discipline and teamwork. Because of his son’s involvement and wanting to maximize the opportunities available to local talented swimmers, Tom along with other passionate supporters established Boilermaker Aquatics. This newly formed swim club, affiliated with Purdue University, unified the local clubs into one team as well as attracted a strong coaching staff. Boilermaker Aquatics has and continues to produce outstanding swimmers at the high school, collegiate and national level. Tom worked tirelessly, and he generously gave his time and talent to accomplish the formation of Boilermaker Aquatics. The family of Thomas M. Price has chosen to honor his memory with an annual scholarship that will leave a legacy for his passion of youth and team sport. This award is administered by The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette.
