Each year the Platteville Dodgeball Club puts on the Tim Ebert Memorial Scholarship Tournament, and this year we are teaming up with the National Dodgeball Association (NDA) to run the event. The tournament will be held on Saturday, August 12th, the link to the event page can be found here (NDA-Platteville). Tim Ebert was a player at the University of Wisconsin Platteville who was respected by his teammates as a captain and friend. Tim could always be counted on, always there to help, and was always making a difference. The funds raised go towards a scholarship in his name offered by the Platteville Dodgeball Club.
Tim loved dodgeball! As a captain, he always wanted to help new players get better and make sure they had fun. I knew that if I ever asked Tim for help he would do what he could. Tim was a firefighter in his hometown and Platteville and worked on campus with facility maintenance, which shows you what type of person he was. He just wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. That is why we thought it was fitting to make a scholarship in his name so that even though he is no longer here, he is still making a difference.
The Platteville Dodgeball Club understands the burden and cost of college and that is why we are offering this Scholarship in the amount of $500 to an applicant deemed worthy by the selection committee.
