Our Party has a Purpose

The Sean “Ranch” Lough Memorial Scholarship – commemorating the life & accomplishments of Sean Lough

Sean “Ranch” Lough – 1971 – 2001

Funded in memory of Sean “Ranch” Lough, a remarkable individual who touched many people with his spirit, aspirations, humor, and kindness. Although his life and bright future were cut short, his spirit remains in everyone he knew.

Sean Lough (AKA ‘Ranch’) was a dear friend, brother and son who tragically passed away in June of 2001 as a result of a mountain biking accident, while living in Richmond, Virginia. In his twenty-nine years of life, Ranch accomplished more than many do in a lifetime. One of his greatest attributes was his ability to live every day to its fullest and have a good time while focusing on accomplishing the high goals he set for himself.

It is felt that this scholarship in his name shall be given to an individual that exemplifies the qualities Ranch had, including a high GPA, an economic need and most of all a hearty personality and a love for life. With this scholarship we hope to help other young people accomplish the goals and aspirations that Ranch never had the chance to. The 4-year, full-ride scholarship to Colorado State University, Sean’s alma mater, is awarded to a deserving student each year at the Derby Party.

The Sean “Ranch” Lough Foundation has absolutely no operating expenses. Its founders and supporters volunteer their time, and the scholarship funds are deposited into CSU’s 501(c)3 and are managed by the school’s endowment manager.
