Timari R. Rivera Memorial Scholarship Award
January 29, 2021
Timari Rivera was set to graduate Staples High School in 2021, but tragically lost his life to illness before he could realize that dream. A dedicated and passionate member of the Staples basketball program, Timari was happier cheering on his teammates than celebrating his own personal success. This “gentle giant,” was a big man with an even bigger heart, and a beloved son, brother, teammate and friend. This award was created by Timari’s basketball community to continue his legacy of kindness, sportsmanship and learning.
