Kassandra Kaulius Memorial Scholarship

Kassandra Kaulius Memorial Scholarship Application

Kassandra Kaulius age 22, was a talented young woman working two jobs putting herself through the University of the Fraser Valley studying to become a Teacher. She was a gifted athlete who had attended 2 Colleges in the United States on full ride Softball Scholarships.

On May 3, 2011 Kassandra Kaulius was driving home after Coaching and then playing a softball game at the Cloverdale Athletic Park in Surrey BC. She left the Park and was proceeding to drive home. At the corner of 152nd Street and 64th Avenue in Surrey she was making a left hand turn on a green light. A Van came speeding down the curb lane on a red light and got airborne over the railroad tracks and struck Kassandra. Her car was broadsided in the drivers’ side door at 103 km an hour the impact sent Kassandra car up and over the meridian and it landed about 1000 feet down the road in pieces strewn across the intersection. Kassandra was just 22 years of age when she was tragically killed by a drunk driver. She was 3 blocks from her home.

Kassandra was a talented athlete who played Softball for 17 years. She played on many Teams including the White Rock Renegades, Delta Heat, Poco Ravens and was an Assistant Coach on the Surrey Storm 97 A Girls Team and a Pitcher on the Surrey Storm Senior Ladies A Team.

Her parents Victor and Markita, sister Miranda and brother Nick wanted to honour Kassandra’s life and started a Scholarship in her name to be a legacy to others in pursuit of a higher education.

Some of Kassandra’s best qualities were that she was always ready to give 100% to everything she did, whether it was a ball practice, ball game, working, or studying. She was always considerate of others and would always be there to cheer other teammates on. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. She was a best friend to everyone and made the commitment to give her best to her sports, academics, and her community. These are some of the qualities and some of the criteria that the family will be looking for in the successful candidate that is chosen to be awarded the Kassandra Kaulius Scholarship.

The Kaulius Family may want to interview the candidate before final selection is made.

Cat Wheatley was a former Richmond Islander Player who was part of several Richmond Islander teams, especially the 1993B team, and then returned as an assistant coach with the Richmond Islanders 2000B team. She is missed by her former team, other coaches, and the whole of RGSA. Cat’s Family honour her memory by presenting several Scholarships in her name at the annual Cat Wheatley Memorial U19B softball tournament.
