When the Oppenheim family tragically lost Dan in January of 2004, their lives were shattered. They
needed an avenue to channel their grief and to develop a tradition that, one day, his three boys could carry on.
They decided to create the Dan Oppenheim, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund. With the guidance of the Greater Kansas City Community
Foundation and West Des Moines Valley High School, the scholarship program is now in place. Dan's family reviews all of the
applicants each year and the winners are announced at the annual Valley High School Senior Awards Night in May. Each year's
winner receives a $2,500 scholarship.
Dan would be proud of this scholarship and the opportunity it will
provide for an athlete walking the same halls he once did years ago.
