Unique Scholarship Bowls a Strike

Greg Cooper was passionate about three things throughout most of his adult life: his family, the transformative power of education, and bowling. The longtime Nipomo resident last year paid tribute to his favorite pastime and his devotion to education in the form of a unique scholarship.

Administered by the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, the Greg and Erika Cooper Bowling Scholarship is awarded each year to an undergraduate majoring in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics at a four-year university. Recipients must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA and bowl either competitively or as a hobby.

Greg Cooper died June 13 at age 87 before meeting this year’s recipient, Shantinath Smyth. He graduated from Dos Pueblos High School and will study electrical engineering at UCLA this fall.
