Brett Storie Scholarship

Brett Storie graduated with honors from Mercer Island High School as a National Merit Scholar in 1999.  He attended the University of California at San Diego until his diagnosis and 2 year battle with Acute Mylogenic Leukemia.  Swimming before the age of one, Brett became a record setting competitor for the Mercer Island Beach Club, garnering awards as the “Most Improved” and “Most Inspirational” swimmer both at the club level and at high school, where he became a state-level athlete.

He especially excelled at and loved playing water polo, becoming team co-captain and leader, an all-state selection and the defensive MVP, sharing two state championships with his teammates.  Brett was comfortable with his intellectual and athletic gifts, possessing an intelligent wisdom and stability beyond his years.  He inspired those around him to excel, even as he was slowing down and fighting for his life.

Brett was an enthusiastic participant in life, academics and sports.  He was very focused on achieving the goals he set for himself, while being dedicated to team concepts, melding his personal strengths and growth with making the team stronger and other individuals around him better, accomplished through perseverance, a love of learning and participation, humor, leadership (usually by example) and old-fashioned hard work.

Brett wished to reward student/athletes who have a love for competing and teaching in the classroom and the pool.  Top grades and athleticism may be considered, but are not the primary criterion for selection.  Inspiration, enthusiasm, drive and focus, sportsmanship, self-improvement and contributions that make the program, the team and the activity better for everyone involved are the attributes of the successful candidate.

A scholarship was previously established in Brett’s honor for any graduating senior who has contributed to the growth of aquatics in any way on Mercer Island.
