Sydney M. Galleger Memorial Scholarships

The Sydney M. Galleger Memorial Scholarship was established in 2015 by the friends and family of Sydney Galleger, who passed away too soon and unexpectedly from a routine dental procedure in June 2015. Sydney attended Eden Prairie Schools from second grade through her  junior year at Eden Prairie High School.  Sydney participated and earned a number of varsity letters in Diving, Alpine Skiing and Synchronized Swimming and was a member of DECA. This scholarship focuses on students who participated in these activities.
