About Ed and Trudy Duncan
Ed and Trudy Duncan have devoted their lives to the betterment of youth. Whether teaching in public school classrooms, leading church youth groups, creating and nurturing The Wesley Bell Ringers, advocating for youth before the Utah State Legislature, or finding teaching moments on cross country concert tours, their constant goal has been to allow every young person the best opportunities to learn, grow and achieve.
For nearly 60 years the Duncans have shared that passion with Christ United Methodist Church. Generations of young people in this congregation have been and continue to be blessed, by Ed and Trudy’s ministry. There are countless well documented examples and stories of their ministry known to all of us. There are perhaps as many or more moments where they quietly changed young lives with unconditional love and assistance when it was most needed.
While this scholarship is intended to honor Trudy and Ed, it also significantly demonstrates that we as a congregation paid attention and have learned from their example. With this scholarship fund we will pass along that passion for youth each year by helping at least one young student to learn, grow and achieve.
