The Dustin Villarreal Family Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by the parents of Dustin Villarreal (1991-2006) as a tribute to this young athlete’s life.
Dustin was a freshman at Geneva High School pursuing his dream to win a state championship and play college football. He loved to compete in sports and had an outstanding work ethic on his teams.
One of the Geneva football coaches stated, “As good a football player as he was, he was a better kid. He just really epitomized what we look for out of a Viking.”
Dustin’s friends characterized him as “a great kid who was always looking out for others, who was always smiling.”
Dustin passed away unexpectedly from an undetected heart ailment. He was survived by his parents, Dave and Jena, and his brother David.
Scholarships from this fund are awarded to Geneva High School graduates who participated in varsity football, have good leadership skills and have demonstrated service to community and/or church. The family would like to help others pursue their dreams.
