The Dustin and Courtney Muse Memorial Fund was established by their parents, Pam Meehan and Don Muse, with generous contributions from a community who wanted to honor the legacy of these two exceptional children who lost their lives at age 16 and 13 in a car accident in 2006. “One of the ways our family can continue to honor Dustin’s life is to help other families with opportunities for their children to participate in athletics,” said Pam Meehan, Dustin’s mother. “These scholarships reflect Dustin’s passion and love for athletics, his commitment to academics, and his desire to inspire others to be the best they can be.”
