The Dr. Riggs Leadership Scholarship was created by The Salvation Army Kroc Center Executive Staff and Advisory Board to honor Jack T. Riggs, M.D. for a lifetime of leadership excellence. We wish to acknowledge and reward a high school senior for exhibiting these same leadership traits and capabilities.
Dr. Jack T. Riggs was born, raised and continues to reside in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. He was a graduate of Coeur d’Alene High School, the University of Idaho and the University of Washington School of Medicine. Dr. Riggs has exhibited excellence in leadership throughout his life in a variety of areas.

Qualified applicants must be able to demonstrate the following:
• Plans to further their formal education beyond high school.
• Examples of leadership at school, at work, at church, in the community, or within the home.
