ENCINITAS — The Amanda Post Scholarship Fund was announced in honor of Cathedral High School student Amanda Post who was one of the youngsters killed in the car accident Aug. 9 on Highway 395 near Bishop.
Gregory Post and his family established the Amanda Post Memorial Scholarship Fund at The San Diego Foundation last week. Amanda was a recipient of the Malini E. Sathyadev Memorial Scholarship also through The San Diego Foundation. The scholarship she received was faith-based in honor of another young woman who passed at the early age of 15 years.
“She was the love of my life. Love of our whole family’s life,” Post said. The Cathedral High School track star was just weeks away from heading to college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
“Losing a loved one is always difficult, but the loss of a child is the greatest pain a parent can ever experience,” said Bob Kelly, president of The San Diego Foundation. “The Amanda Post Scholarship Fund will honor an outstanding athlete by facilitating the goals, aspirations and dreams of many students in the years to come. This gesture of honor by the family speaks volumes of her character and will allow her legacy to live on.”
The Post family selected The San Diego Foundation for their trusted and established reputation as the largest provider of scholarships with more than 150 scholarship funds stewarded by staff. The fund is intended to honor Amanda and actualize the dreams of youth.
