On October 21, 2004 our daughter, Victoria “Torie” Snelgrove, attended a Red Sox celebration in Boston and was tragically killed. In her memory we have established The Victoria Snelgrove Memorial Fund, a non-profit organization to carry forward her spirit and concern for others. It was Torie’s dream to pursue a career in broadcast journalism and she was on her way to accomplishing that goal at Emerson College when she died. Since establishing The Fund seven years ago we have worked hard to fulfill the mission set before us to keep Torie’s spirit alive.

Thoughts & Tributes

"I've had the pleasure of having several classes with Bob Clinkscale. Not only has he raved about what an ambitious journalist Victoria was, but he also praised her grace and humility as a young woman. That being said, I am both honored and privileged to be this year's Snelgrove Memorial Scholarship recipient (2012) So that I may continue the passion driven trail that Victoira once walked herself. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for believing in me."   - Ariana Sandillo
