Dick Veech Scholarship
The Dick Veech Scholarship is awarded to a Hermantown High School senior athlete who participated in at least one varsity sport, met eligibility requirements, is a conscientious student in the classroom, and active in their community.
Dick Veech was the youngest of five children who grew up living in a Jackson Project home, right alongside the Hermantown School. He attended Hermantown School K-12. Dick Veech was a conscientious student, wonderful classmate in the class of 1953, and was a very talented athlete. Some say that Dick was one of the best basketball players ever in 73 years of Hawks hoops to wear the blue and gold. He went on to U.M.D to become a geography and physical education teacher, and played basketball for the bulldogs all four years as “mighty mite” guard. He cared deeply for his family, his students, his athletes, his friends, and his community. He freely showed his emotions, spoke his mind on current issues, enjoyed a hearty meal, liked good conversation, attended hundreds of Hermantown Hawks’ sporting events, and was a true friend to many.
This scholarship was established in memory of long-time Hermantown teacher and coach Dick Veech by the Centricity Credit Union Foundation for $1500.
