Ian Cash
Eatonville High School

    Stan would be proud to know that someone as ubiquitous as Ian Cash would be the recipient of an award about sports and civic betterment. Stan was involved in more of everything in Tacoma than any other local citizen we can remember. Ian seems to be on his way to being similar in Eatonville.

    In school at Eatonville high, Ian played varsity soccer for four years and he played football during his junior year. Much of his time was devoted to the Dra-ma department, however, and he was active in community events and his church. He was part of the backstage crew as a freshman but became crew chief for three remaining years. In his senior year he was in charge of sound. He also provided sound for the Daffodil Princess selection, the Christmas program, and for One Act Plays. At the Pierce County Skills Center he is a part of a Forensic Team.

    At church, he has been an active member of Bethany Lutheran where he also
    is a member of their Youth Group. He runs the sound booth for services and helps with annual clean-up.

    For the past two summers he has attended the summer mission trip to Idaho where he has helped local resi-dents with home repairs/renovations in the Silver Valley (Kellogg to Wallace). He participates in the Pierce County Hunger Walk at Ft. Steilacoom and assists with the Memorial Day Service at Bethany Cemetery.

    What about sports and school that stands out? He was an All-League honorable mention Goal Keeper and he averaged 14 saves a match. In his only field time, you guessed it, he scored one! His coach credited him for his leadership in soccer with his work and his words. With a stronger supporting cast “Ian is the kind of keeper who could have been hanging championships banners.”

    Elsewhere in school, though, Ian was the star of the show. He played Henry Spencer in the school’s One Act Plays and then he played Perchik in Fiddler on the Roof. The only Soccer match he missed the entire season
    resulted from a conflict between Drama and Soccer. That’s when he played a leading role in Fiddler on the Roof. The school’s report card on that one? He nailed it!

    Stan “the Man” would have been the first to congratulate him. He now has a $2,500 TAC Scholarship in honor of Stan. Same as Cash.
