The Nathan S. Cutler Memorial Scholarships were established, through the
generous contributions of Nate?s family and friends, to recognize high
school and college students in the Daiheigen community for their academic
and Judo achievements. Past honorees include David Fukuda, Sayaka Matsumoto,
and Trenton Mitsuoka.
The personal essays of the honorees will be included in the program for the
2002 East Bay Invitational Judo Tournament. The Committee is certain that
the awards will be meaningful to the recipients, and that the scholarships
will be put to use in the spirit of education and spirituality that defined
Nate, long-time East Bay Judo Institute member and assistant instructor.
