Dino Michael Rudolph Scholarship


When Dino was a senior in high school, he lost his life in an accident.
We wanted to do something in his memory.
Starting with his graduating class of 2002, we decided to give a scholarship in his name, to a graduating senior.

The criteria for his scholarship was based on the following:

The student must be graduating from Blacklick Valley High School and be accepted to a college or another school to further their education.

The student must portray the same qualities that teachers saw in Dino...Cooperation, Friendship and Service towards fellow classmates

When the scholarship was first started the student received $500.00. Thanks to the continued support, family donations, and success of the 3 on 3 Memorial Basketball tournament, in 2009, the scholarships being awarded were increased to $1,000.00 for each student.
