The scholarship is open to athletes who excelled in golf, basketball, cheerleading and gymnastics, sports to which the Conrads had direct impact at Wawasee High School. Stephen Conrad was a standout golfer and was part of a successful run of Wawasee hoops in the early 2000s. Conrad later golfed in college and held a professional status while working for a country club in rural Phoenix, Ariz. Kim Conrad served the high school and athletic community as a cheerleading and gymnastics coach, a gymnastics official and ardent supporter of Wawasee athletics. Kim’s other two sons, Michael and Jeffrey, were also athletes at Wawasee in football, basketball and golf.
