Memorial scholarship established in honor of Scott Hague
Through contributions from family members, the North Idaho College Foundation has established the Scott Hague Memorial Scholarship in honor of NIC alumnus and community supporter Scott Hague, 40, who died as a result of cancer March 1 in Coeur d'Alene.
The scholarship will benefit deserving NIC students through the NIC Providing Opportunities—Fulfilling Dreams Community Campaign.
“Scott would be very pleased to know that others would be helped in his honor,” said Denny Hague, Scott's father and an NIC Trustee.
The NIC Foundation hopes that community contributions will help grow the scholarship to the endowment level, a minimum of $5,000.
“With an endowment, the principal balance will live in perpetuity and the interest earnings each year will provide an annual scholarship instead of a one-time only award,” said NIC Foundation Executive Director Rayelle Anderson. “The greater the endowment principal, the greater the scholarship award each year.”
Scott grew up in Coeur d'Alene and graduated from Coeur d'Alene High School in 1982. He earned a degree in electronics from NIC in 1987 and worked most recently for the Harris-Dean Insurance Agency.
Scott enjoyed spending time with his family as well as outdoor sports. He completed the Coeur d'Alene Triathlon two consecutive years and was known locally as Coach Hague after dedicating many years as a youth football and soccer coach.
The scholarship fund has been established through the NIC Providing Opportunities—Fulfilling Dreams Community Campaign, a fundraising campaign to support technology and equipment for the new NIC Health and Sciences Building as well as the establishment of student scholarships.
Tax-deductible contributions may be sent to Attn: Scott Hague Memorial Scholarship, NIC Foundation, 1000 W. Garden Ave., Coeur d'Alene, ID, 83814.
