The $1,500 scholarships are offered in the memory of Taylor Reid Haugen, Class of 2011. Taylor was a member of the Niceville Eagles Football and Wrestling Teams as well as being an Honor Student at Niceville High School. He was comfortably expressive about his faith in God and showed it through his commitment to volunteer work in his church and community. This scholarship is awarded to an area athlete who best demonstrates a similar balance between academics, athleticism, leadership, community service and Christian faith. The Foundation hopes to recognize those well- rounded individuals who demonstrate the perseverance to improve themselves in all aspects of their life while enjoying God’s gifts to the fullest.
