ROSCOMMON – A new endowment fund benefitting students of Roscommon Area Public Schools (RAPS) has been established by the Smith family.
The Jim ‘Smitty’ Smith Athletic Fund will provide scholarships to 8th-11th grade Roscommon High School students to attend athletic summer camps.
Jim ‘Smitty’ Smith, a 1988 graduate of Roscommon High School and die-hard Lions fan, was very involved in high school sports, playing and helping to coach.
By establishing a fund with the Foundation, his wife, Kris Walker-Smith, says ‘We want to honor Jim by giving Roscommon students a chance to be involved in sports, and make memories that last a lifetime.’
Eligible RAPS students will be able to apply for the Jim ‘Smitty’ Smith Athletic Fund beginning the next scholarship period. Applications will be available in January 2019.
