Erik Robin Bruhjell Memorial Scholarship
Erik Robin Bruhjell was a SHS graduate and a resident of Bonner County for 15 of his 22 years of life. Many who knew Erik, felt he was wise beyond his years. Erik was interested in many things and thus was able to find common ground with just about anyone.
Erik's multiple interests included the environment, the arts, humanitarian issues and animal welfare. When Erik interacted with people, he didn't just see their surface, but rather saw their amazing potential to be a partner in his quest to make the world a better place for all living things.
In his short life, Erik became involved in many projects and organizations which strived to change the world in a positive way. He was a student board member on the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force, whose opinion and contributions of intellect and caring were valued.
Unfortunately, his good work was cut short by his untimely death shortly after he graduated from Gonzaga University with a B.S. in Environmental Science.
This scholarship is intended to be a way to honor Erik's memory. The recipient should embody the enthusiasm, passion and inclusiveness that Erik brought to the world.
