Steven Auld Jr Memorial Scholarship

Steven Auld Jr Memorial Scholarship


Created in 2013 by friends and family of Steven Auld

As a Captain of the 2003 2A State Football Championship team and a Captain of the Wrestling team, Steven Auld was an active athlete and leader at Meridian High School.

A beloved husband, son, brother and a great friend to many within the Laurel community, this endowment was created to keep Steven’s memory alive and strong at the Meridian School District. Steven started attending Meridian his Sophomore year and instantly became a proud member of the Laurel community. After graduating high school, Steven attended the College of the Siskiyou where he played football and then later transferred to Washington State University.

After college Steven moved back home and started working in the construction industry. He stayed active within the community by attending Meridian sporting events and volunteering his time to help with wrestling tournaments and fundraisers. Steven always looked for ways to give back to the school district and some may even remember him as their camp counselor at the Middle School Outdoor Education Camp, or others from when he helped coach the Meridian Football team.

In 2009, at the age of 23, Steven was diagnosed with colon cancer. After enduring a courageous three year battle, Steven Auld passed away on September 25, 2012. He left behind countless memories within the Laurel Community that he loved so dearly. It is the wish of his wife Whitney Auld, family members, and friends that his legacy live on through a Meridian Public School Foundation Scholarship.
