YR hosts our annual Scooter Scramble each September to honor our friend and to raise money to support area youth through the Robert “Scooter” Tiemann TEENPOWER Scholarship Fund.
The Scooter Scholarship Fund was founded because Scooter used to pay the registration fee for students with financial need to participate in Youth Resources’ High School and Middle School TEENPOWER leadership development conferences. Scooter never wanted anyone, especially the kids, to know that he was behind their generous scholarships. We’ve spilled his secret, but we know that he would be thrilled that more students can now attend TEENPOWER to meet positive adult and peer role models, learn about making healthy choices, develop their leadership skills, and make life-long friends.
Since 2013, the Scooter Scholarship Fund has provided 132 students with the opportunity to attend TEENPOWER. 189 golfers, 170 sponsors, 27 volunteers and countless supporters raised a record-breaking $29,000 this year for the Scooter Scholarship Fund and Youth Resources.
All proceeds from the Scooter Scramble benefit Youth Resources and the Robert “Scooter” Tiemann TEENPOWER Scholarship Fund.
Remembering Robert “Scooter” Tiemann
Robert “Scooter” Tiemann was an advocate for youth and a long-time volunteer with Youth Resources’ TEENPOWER and Teen Advisory Council programs. He was deeply respected and loved by the students he mentored and the peers he volunteered alongside because he made us laugh, he made us feel special, and he simply cared. We were and still are broken-hearted at his unexpected passing on June 10, 2013 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident while on business in Pecos, TX.
At YR, we work through our grief by acting, and we are grateful to continue Scooter’s legacy. We want to especially remember his philanthropy, his quiet leadership, his humility, and his authenticity. Youth Resources’ Robert “Scooter” Tiemann TEENPOWER Scholarship Fund honors those wonderful traits into perpetuity thanks to generous friends, family, and community members.
A 2000 Memorial High School graduate, Scooter was the president of his class for two years, played football, and was honored by the Rotary Club which enabled him to travel to Germany as a summer exchange student. He majored in communications and minored in economics at DePauw University, where he was a member of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, studied abroad in England, and played rugby.
Scooter worked in the oil industry for Hydrocarbon Acquisitions where he specialized in GIS mapping, title curative and land acquisitions. Scooter and his wife, Carlee (Schnautz) Tiemann, were married May 18, 2013 at St. Boniface Catholic Church. Carlee has a spirit as generous and beautiful as Scooter’s, and we are blessed to have her in the YR family. Chip Tiemann, Scooter’s brother, is a member of Youth Resources’ board of directors and he and his wife Melissa are passionate advocates for kids and for the programs at YR that Scooter loved so much. Bob and Tee Tiemann, Scooter’s parents, are also tireless supporters of Scooter’s legacy at YR. Scooter is missed dearly by many, including he and Carlee’s four-legged ‘son’ Doug.
