Tom excelled in academics as well as athletics. The scholarship fund, along with the tournaments held each year to support the fund, are a fitting tribute to Tom’s memory. The following is by R. L. Stevenson…

That a man is a success who has lived well,
laughed often, and loved much;
who has gained the respect of intelligent
men and the love of children;
who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.”

Since his accidental death in 1979, the Memorial Basketball and Golf Tournaments have been held annually in remembrance of Dr. Thomas Tanneberger. Each year a graduating senior that has demonstrated academic and athletic excellence is awarded a $4000 4-year scholarship in Tom’s name. In addition, an alternate receives a $500 award.
