The Suzanne Manlet Foundation annually sponsors scholarships for two Hall of Fame Athletes of the Year. The Athletes are invited to submit essay applications with their information forms when they are nominated to represent their schools at the Hall of Fame Induction Banquet every year.
The Suzanne Manlet Foundation is a memorial to the legendary CIF Championship Softball coach at Simi Valley High School. The generosity of the Foundation reflects Suzanne’s ebullient spirit and sense of purpose. More than wins and losses, she instilled in her players a work ethic and sense of mission that superseded the actual games. Her Foundation works like Suzanne did – to impact the lives of young people in the most positive way it can.
