A fund supporting scholarships for track and field, or cross country high school student-athletes in Anchorage
Hello, I’m Barry Koch. I Grew up in southern California, where cross country and track & field were among the highlights of my high school years. After many years of pursuing different education and job opportunities, I ended up here in Alaska, where I became a teacher, coach, and finally, an official starter for cross country and track & field in Anchorage.
What I want to do is give back to the running community who has been so important to me. With two $2000.00 scholarships. The scholarships will be awarded annually to any region IV or Anchorage area high school seniors apply to college or technical school. A GPA of 2.5 is required, and students must have at least two years of participation in track, field, or cross country running.
