The Dan Sturtz

Memorial Scholarship

The Dan Sturtz Memorial Scholarship goes towards helping youths be able to play the sport of rugby. The Dan Sturtz Memorial Scholarship is named after Canton's very own Dan Sturtz, who passed away suddenly at the age of 43 in 2016. Dan Sturtz was one of the most dedicated members of the Canton Rugby Football Club, serving as the  head coach for the Canton Men's 15s team, and also as the creator and head coach of the Canton Area High School rugby team. Dan was known to use his own personal funds to develop and grow youth rugby in Stark county by making sure money was never an obstacle for youths wanting to play his beloved sport. The money Dan donated went towards registration fees, supplying gear, and providing transportation.  The Canton Rugby Foundation will make sure that his efforts in years past will continue on in his memory for future ruggers.  Please join us in celebrating our friend, Dan, as we honor him in a way we know he would appreciate.  Be There and Go Forward!
