Ron Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund
This scholarship is given in memory of Ron Smith (June 10, 1953- February 15, 2003) to Suttons Bay High School seniors bound for post-secondary education who have demonstrated commitment to and tireless pursuit of academic and athletic excellence.
Ron was an ardent supporter of Suttons Bay High School and its athletic teams. He and his wife Marie did not miss a game his stepsons played in and they could still be found at the football field on Friday nights long after their sons’ - Chuck Whitney ’98 and Mac Whitney ’01 - graduations.
Ron was a beloved community member and during his days spent managing the local Suttons Bay car wash he was quick to greet everyone who stopped by with a smile and unflagging willingness to talk Norsemen sports regardless of wins and losses.
This annual scholarship will support Suttons Bay High School graduates as they diligently pursue success at the next level, whatever that may be and through all challenges they may face.
