The Lynda J. Hathaway Scholarship Fund
Linda Hathaway Fund

The Lynda J. Hathaway Scholarship Fund: provides financial assistance to Portland children whose families are unable to afford skating programs offered by the Recreation Department. The Fund will have a strong focus in the area of helping children, age 4 – 17 years old, who participate in our WeSkate Learn to Skate and WeSkate Figure Skating program.

Lynda created this program under ISI (Ice Skating Institute) who encourages participation in ice skating as a recreational sport and provides ice skating programs for all ages and abilities. Lynda held true to the ISI Skaters Creed:

  • I will try to do my own personal best.
  • I will support and encourage my fellow teammates.
  • I will make three new friends at this competition from ice rinks other than my own.
  • I will be a good representative from my home rink team.
  • I will skate at my own true level of ability.
  • I will be modest in victory.
  • I will be gracious in defeat.
  • I will not focus on winning but on my participation and enjoyment of ice skating.

The Lynda J. Hathaway Scholarship Fund will provide children the opportunity to participate in programs that Lynda is passionate about. It will make skating lessons accessible and affordable and will continue Lynda’s dream of making skating a life-long recreational activity for everyone.
