Vermont Adaptive Ski was awarded a $500 grant from the Joshua Stamm Memorial Scholarship Fund, a charitable fund administered by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan. Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, located in Killington, Vermont, is the largest year-round disabled sports non-profit organization offering the most diverse program opportunities and unique, specialized equipment. The purpose of this grant is to provide scholarships for adaptive skiers.
The Joshua Stamm Memorial Scholarship Fund was created in 2008 by family and friends to memorialize Joshua, who was an Eagle Scout with Troop 63 in Goshen, a member of the 105th Air National Guard’s Young Champions, an avid skier, music fan, and baseball player. Joshua participated in countless wheelchair road races, including several Orange Classics and the Special Olympics at West point. In short, he was an amazing young man.
The Joshua Stamm Memorial Scholarship Fund has also awarded $6,000 in scholarships at Goshen High School since 2008 when the fund was established. The most recent recipient was Ashley Depoo who recently started her freshman year at SUNY Orange.
The Joshua Stamm Memorial Scholarship Fund is facilitated through the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, a 501(c)(3) public charity that was created to help individuals, organizations, and businesses establish charitable endowments within their community.
