Christopher Saalfeld Memorial Scholarship
The Christopher John Saalfeld Scholarship has been created thru loving generosity of friends and family. Christopher graduated from Columbus High School in 1979. He received his mechanical engineering degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas in 1983. He believed that with hard work, determination and a little humor anything could be achieved.
We wanted to establish this scholarship in honor and in memory of Christopher's wonderful, yet short life. Christopher always strived for high standards both in music and academics. The scholarship will be awarded to a worthy student with exceptional ideals in furthering their education.
May we remember each year as this scholarship is given that what really matters in this life is how we live and love each day. Remember what is real and true and important in this shot time we are given. Remember to laugh, to give of yourself, and to be the very best you can be. Today is all we have. Live well!
The recipient of this scholarship will be awarded $1,500.
