Tanner J. Perry Memorial Scholarship
The Tanner Perry Memorial Scholarship was established by John and Cathy Perry to honor the memory of their son, who lost a battle with cancer in 2008 at the age of 17. Tanner was described as a courageous fighter with a gentle spirit. During his yearlong fight with cancer, he became a leader-in-training for Camp Goodtimes, a summer camp for young people diagnosed with the disease. As a Cashmere High School student, he was an enthusiastic member of the cross country and knowledge bowl teams. Tanner was also involved in the school’s Alpine Club and Leadership Club. He loved hiking to high mountain lakes, mountain biking and snowboarding. He had a gift for math and science and planned on attending college to become a forensic scientist.
