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.
