LOUIS SCHMITZ FOUNDATION

LOUIS SCHMITZ FOUNDATION STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

Louie Schmitz was a local Farmington man that started youth hockey and coached and supported many other youth sports in Farmington. His involvement in youth sports and the community was a platform to support children and to change lives. He cared about kids and felt that they should be involved and busy, whether playing sports together with other children or taking part in community activities. He believed in commitment and fair play and that all children should have an opportunity to grow and learn and to be part of a team. He unselfishly devoted his time for many years and was an advocate for Farmington youth. The Louis Schmitz Foundation was created to uphold his memory and to continue the tradition of supporting Farmington.

The Louis Schmitz Memorial Scholarship is one of the ways that The Louis Schmitz Foundation gives back to the community. The memorial scholarship is presented each year to one male and one female graduating high school senior that live within the Farmington Area Public Schools District 192 borders.
