After Evanís accident, we tried to think of ways to remember Evan by helping others. The most successful result of so many kind contributions to his memory is the Evan Clark Memorial Scholarship Fund at St. Ignatius College Prep, where Evan and I attended high school. A fund-raiser was held at St. Ignatius on June 15, 2002, from which the bulk of the fund was raised, although hundreds of prior donations had already laid the groundwork. To date, the compassionate kindness of over 700 people has endowed two full scholarships for deserving students at a school that Evan admired for its diverse student body, academic rigors, and commitment to social justice and tolerance. Founded in 1870, St. Ignatius has a well known reputation for not just scholastic excellence, but also for enabling attendance there regardless of financial need.
