These words were a favorite expression of our scholarship
honoree 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.
