Jamie Zepp Memorial Scholarship

The Jamie Zepp Memorial Scholarship will go to help a Rapid City Central High School senior attend college.  Jamie spent his life gathering knowledge and experiences and then eagerly shared the wisdom he gained with others.  His positivity and ‘up-for-anything’ attitude was infectious and he brought out the best in those who were lucky enough to call him a friend.   All net proceeds from his book “Modern Odyssey: My Appalachian Trail Experience” as well as net proceeds from fundraisers will go toward funding this scholarship.  It will be a continuing effort to populate the leaders of the next generation with Jamie Zepp’s view of life: that EVERY day is a chance to be a better person and to bring out the best in others.
