Tom Snover was a young man who presented himself to the world just as he was – capable and fun loving, with integrity and sincerity. In his 18 years of life, he touched the lives of many people. He was known for his engaging smile and the way that he could bring people together and make everyone feel comfortable. He lived his dreams and worked hard to do all that he wanted to do. He loved baseball, golf, scuba diving, skiing, camping, music, his guitar, and his motorcycle. But most of all, he loved his family and friends. In 2001, the day before he was to graduate with honors from Rocky Mountain High School, Tom died in a motorcycle accident.
To honor his life and carry forward his ambitions, family and friends have established the Thomas B. Snover Memorial Fund. This year we are pleased to be able to award a $5000 scholarship to a senior from one of the Fort Collins high schools. The $5000 scholarship will be given to a student who is college bound and exhibits Tom's exceptional character and zest for life.
