2nd Annual Celine Wyatt Memorial Tournament
Posted on 04/30/2015
This tournament is being organized by the Ohio Impact Organization and all proceeds will go to the Celine Wyatt Memorial Scholarship fund that is set up at the Muskingum County Community Foundation. This memorial fund will be used to provide scholarships to; a Senior Softball player chosen from schools in the State of Ohio (following an application process), a Tri-Valley senior who is going on to further their education (upon coaches recommendation), and at least one, possibly two young girls who play in the Impact Organization (toward the cost of fees). It is the intention of this Scholarship program to assist hard-working female athletes in the State of Ohio, who wish to pursue higher education. Celine Wyatt was an 11 year old area athlete who was killed September 16, 2013. She played with a passion and skill level well beyond her 11 years, and it is our desire that through this scholarship we can assist other worthy student athletes achieve their own goals and dreams. We wish to continue the legacy she began and continue to celebrate her life, while helping others in the process. We know that this is what she would have wanted.
