The family and friends of Louis Skurcenski created this scholarship in his memory in 2006. A former college athlete and member of the Phillips 66ers Basketball Team (which dominated amateur basketball for 40 years), Lou was a tireless supporter of youth sports in Bartlesville and spent countless hours as a coach, mentor, volunteer, and fan.
After a 12-year battle with cancer, Lou’s life was cut far too short. Lou was employed for 34 years as an analytical chemist for
Phillips Petroleum Company. He also enjoyed tutoring and encouraging students in the pursuit of science and business.
Remembered for his dry sense of humor, encouraging spirit and optimistic outlook in all situations, this award is presented each year to a college-bound senior who is a student-athlete, and who embodies the qualities of a natural leader–integrity, good sportsmanship and a positive attitude–which made Lou a beloved part of many lives.
The deadline for this application is March 1, 2017 at 5 pm.
