A snow sports scholarship fund was established in April 2011, when George Roach passed away, to honor his spirit, and commitment to young people. George served as the Learning Center Director at Anthony Lakes for several years. The George Roach Scholarship endeavors to share the vision of celebrating the sport, of inspiring youth, and sharing the love for the Anthony Lake mountains. Thanks to the generosity of dozens of supporters both locally and from across the United States, we are able to accomplish this vision, empowering students in a life changing experience by learning to ski or board.
George Roach exemplified the best the mountain has to offer. He was an outstanding teacher, leader and administrator of the Anthony Lakes Learning Center. His passion for snow sports influenced students, staff and management. George lived, breathed and loved skiing for over 70 years. Throughout his professional career George has shared his knowledge and skills.
Scholarships will be awarded to students for participation in the Anthony Lakes “Learn to Ski/Board” school programs. We are now receiving applications for scholarships from students wishing to participate in ski programs from other School Districts who visit AnthonyLakes, as well as the ‘Ski for the Health of It” program for Baker and North Powder schools. The scholarship covers equipment rentals (boards, boots, skis poles) and ski or boarding lessons at Anthony Lakes. Transportation is handled through the schools or communities.
If you know, or are, a student who would not be able to participate in a school ski/boarding program without financial support, let us know. We will make sure applications are available through your school. If you would like to make a donation to the George Roach Scholarship fund, please send your tax-deductible contribution to Anthony Lakes Ski Resort (Baker County Development Corporation). In the memo line note: George’s Scholarship Fund. All donations are tax deductible.
