Jim Cusick, born and raised in Weed, CA spent most of his life in the Weed/Mt. Shasta area. While attending Weed High School (class of ’45) he lettered in four sports. After serving in the Army, he played football for the only undefeated team in Santa Rosa Junior College history (1949-50). He remained a sportsman throughout his life valuing family, friends and small town life. After his death in November of 1997, his family, friends and teammates from Weed High School and Santa Rosa Jr. College put together this scholarship fund and annual golf tournament to honor his memory and help local high school athletes attain their college dreams. This scholarship, originally funded through donations and the golf tournament, is now being maintained entirely through donations.
