About Us

Mike Clement – 1980

Mike Clement was a special person whose life touched many people in his short time on earth. He was a gifted athlete, a serious student, a loving son, brother, and husband, a faithful friend, and a devoted follower of Jesus Christ,. Mike displayed great courage and an indomitable spirit in battling the effects of Multiple Sclerosis.

Mike’s family and friends have been honoring his life and influence by awarding academic scholarships annually since his death.

In 2015 Friends of Mike Clement was formed as a Texas non-profit corporation to continue and expand the family’s work. We are also IRS 501(c)3 exempt. Our mission is to raise funds to award scholarships to deserving students in the Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District.

In spring 2017 we awarded our first scholarships to eight outstanding students.
