Kevin Murnane Scholarship Fund

It is the sincere wish of Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association to honor and foster the personal qualities that Kevin Murnane so strongly exemplified in our community. From 1999 to 2015, he served as Manager and Director of Tahoe XC and was a truly good citizen and friend.

Each year, we offer two scholarships worth up to $1000 each to deserving graduating seniors from North Tahoe High School who have participated in nordic programs during their Middle and High School Years. We wish to honor those who display the same kindness, generosity, and love for nordic skiing that Kevin embodied. If you participated in Nordic ski programs at Tahoe XC, Auburn Ski Club, Far West, North Tahoe Middle and High Schools, if you understand the value of Nordic skiing as a lifelong sport and demonstrate selflessness, decency, and good nature within our community then you embody the qualities this scholarship seeks. Funds awarded are intended to help students with their higher education. It is not required that applicants intend to ski competitively in college.

For coaches, TCCSEA is offering a Coaching Development Grant to support hard-working coaches who mentor our young North Tahoe athletes and who need financial support to attend clinics, symposiums, classes and trainings. Kevin understood the need for quality coaching and for developing strong youth programs, and TCCSEA also wishes to continually support local coaches as best we can. Therefore, there will be one grant available each year awarded June 1st. Funding provided will be up to $1000 per grant.
