The Boston Glueckert Memorial Scholarship

Boston Glueckert was born to Matthew and Daisy (Zahn) Glueckert in Williston, North Dakota on May 4, 2004. He was raised and educated in Williston attending St. Joseph’s Catholic School from kindergarten through the 6th grade, then Williston Middle School and Williston High School. Boston worked many small odd jobs for family, friends, and neighbors.

Boston had many hobbies and interests; he especially enjoyed being around his family and loved anything in the outdoors, including biking, hunting, fishing, hiking, shooting, skiing, camping, and canoeing. He also liked to play board games and X-box with his brothers. He enjoyed drawing and was always open to trying new things and having new experiences.

Active in many clubs, sports, and organizations, Boston was a member of the National Junior Honor Society, Williston Basin Skating Club, Williston High School Clay Target League, Williston High School Hockey team, Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth Baseball, and WPR Youth Football.

Boston was loved by many; there was never a day he didn’t say “I love you” before bed, as he headed out the door, or as he was being dropped off. No matter who was around, he said it loud and proud! He was quite the jokester, and he knew how to put a smile on anyone’s face and always had a smile for everyone. He is dearly missed.

This scholarship was created by Boston's family -- including his sports family -- and is intended to honor the way Boston lived each day and what a positive impact he had on all who knew him.
