Norm Wilensky Memorial Scholarship
Norm Wilensky was a dedicated husband, father and friend, with his focus towards the needs of others. He carried his love of family and friends to his love of sports. Norman was a loyal person and this was evident in his commitment to racquetball. He enjoyed playing for over 30 years of his life. Norm played six days a week and never tired of the game. Every day was a fresh start, every game beginning on a level playing field. Norm died suddenly at the age of 62 but will never be forgotten. His dedication to the sport will live on through his strong values and through young collegiate students who love racquetball.
With the help of friends in the racquetball community, the Norman Wilensky Scholarship Fund was created to keep his memory alive.
