A request from Joe Atkins . . .
As many of you know, Don Roberts, a beloved coach and teacher at Simley High School, has touched countless lives over the years. He has been involved in virtually every facet of our community, inspiring all who know him. He has been chairing the IGH B.E.S.T. Foundation Golf Tournament since it started.
About a month ago, the IGH B.E.S.T. Foundation was approached by a former student-athlete of Don’s, whose family wants to help endow a scholarship to honor Don. They offered $5,000 in matching funds to assist in reaching the $10,000 minimum required to endow a scholarship. If you would like to help honor Don and continue to inspire the next generation through an endowed scholarship to be awarded for years to come, please consider sending a tax-deductible contribution. Your donation, if a check, should be made out to the IGH B.E.S.T. Foundation – Roberts Scholarship and mailed to the Foundation at P.O. Box 2276, Inver Grove Heights, MN 55076 OR you may click here to donate online.
