The healing process begins..Posted Wednesday, August 24, 2011, at 8:07 PM
A few weeks ago, the class of 2011 lost a valuable classmate with the death of Linzi Dudding. We join several other classes that have lost much loved members- a club no one is the slightest bit happy to join.
Fortunately, Linzi, one of the best debate partners I ever had, is not going to go forgotten.
I received this note in a link today. I hope you will donate, even if it's just buying some cotton candy at the game.
Linzi was such a bright and wonderful person- my heart is still broken from the loss, and I know many others are feeling what I've been feeling.
Mountain Home High School Debate Team
Establishes Linzi Dudding Scholarship Fund
The Mountain Home High School Speech and Debate team, in conjunction with the Dudding family, has established the Linzi Dudding Scholarship Fund for Speech and Debate Team members at Mountain Home High School.
" We wanted to honor the life of one of the most vibrant students I have ever had," Debate Coach John Petti said. " In keeping with what Linzi would have wanted, we will give away smaller scholarships to more students, therefore more students could benefit and none would have to be chosen over another."
Every Speech and Debate team member that competes three years on the team, including their last year in high school, and maintains a "B" average and has plans to go on to college would be eligible for the scholarship.
Tax deductable donations can be made to the Linzi Dudding Scholarship Fund at the US Bank in Mountain Home or sent to: Mountain Home High School Debate Team c/o Mountain Home High School 300 South 11th East, Mountain Home, ID 83647. Checks should be made out to the Linzi Dudding Scholarship Fund.
"We are hoping to get a lot of support from the community to keep this scholarship going for a long time," Petti added. "The Debate team will donate all of the money earned from cotton candy sales at the first home football game on Friday, September 2."
