Dan Troup, a dear friend of CYC, is establishing the James Gall Memorial Scholarship. Created in honor of “Jim” Gall, devoted husband to Pam Gall and close friend of Dan, the scholarship will be a new opportunity to recognize and reward CYC Outstanding Students. 

As Dan memorializes, “Jim lived his life in a manner that closely aligned with the core values of CYC – accountability, integrity, passion, community, and empowerment. Of those values, Jim will be remembered for two above all others: passion and community. Passion, because Jim believed that life was for the living and that one must invest passionately in living every day to its fullest. Communtiy, because every person that Jim met became a member of his “community of friends” that he fostered, nurtured, and helped in any way he could.”

“If Jim were alive today, we believe he would be proud to support CYC and be honored to support outstanding students in their quest to live life to its fullest and help us all build a better community.”

CYC is humbled and honored to be part of such a moving tribute to a life well-lived. Thank you, Dan, for paying it forward and striving to build a better community.
