MASON ZIEGLER WAS the kind of person you could always depend on.

“He was the counselor to all his friends,” said Tami Ziegler, who is organizing a memorial scholarship benefit for her son's graduating class. “He was the kid that everybody turned to.”

The Port Angeles High School honor student died last August in a motorcycle accident on the Oregon Coast. He was 16.

The Mason Ziegler Memorial Scholarship Benefit on Saturday, July 6, will raise money for a scholarship to be awarded to one of Mason's peers in the Class of 2014, the incoming senior class.

The benefit will take place at four venues in and around Port Angeles. It will feature a street bike run, vintage bike show, motocross grand-prix, 5K and 10K walk-and-run, spaghetti feed and silent auction.

All proceeds will be awarded to the recipient of the Mason Ziegler Memorial Scholarship.

“We haven't set up any boundaries yet as far as the scholarship goes,” Tami Ziegler said.

“I do know that it will not be based on the most athletic and the most scholared student.”

Kelly Ziegler, Mason's father, said the scholarship is “probably going to focus more, I would assume, on integrity.”

“That's what he was about,” he said, adding that his son was “easygoing” and “got along with everybody . . . "
