The Joshua Meurin Soccer Scholarship Memorial Fund was started after Joshua’s tragic death in an automobile accident on August 1, 2009. Joshua was a consummate soccer player who began playing as a rambunctious 5 year-old with the New Braunfels Youth Soccer Association. His passion and love of the game was apparent through the years as he moved from the recreational level to the competitive club level with the Lions FC where he played for seven wonderful years. He played high school ball at Canyon HS his freshman and sophomore years and then, after his family moved, he transferred to New Braunfels HS to finish out his high school career. After graduation, Joshua attended Texas State University to pursue a degree in Industrial Engineering while also working at Los Cucos Restaurant in New Braunfels.
Over the past eight years, the Scholarship Fund has awarded $25,000 to senior players from the Lion’s FC as well as the two high schools that Joshua attended. To fund the scholarship, we hold the Joshua Meurin Soccer Scholarship Memorial Fund Benefit every October at Billy’s Ice in New Braunfels. We raise funds through direct donations, through selling BBQ dinners provided by Cooper’s BBQ and through a Silent Auction. This year the Benefit will be held on Saturday, October 20th, 2018. We are in the process of collecting donations for the event and we are hoping that you will consider donating to the Silent Auction. By donating an item, you will be making a tax-deductible contribution that will continue to help deserving Lions FC player with his or her college education.
In addition, your company will benefit from the exposure of your company’s name to those who attend the event. Donors will be listed on the event program and the merchandise you donate will be on display throughout the event.
We hope you will consider donating an item for the silent auction to support the Joshua Meurin Soccer Scholarship Memorial Fund or if you would like to make a monetary donation you may visit our website at JOSHMEURINSOCCERSCHOLARSHIP.org.
