Noah Riche Memorial Fund
Genuine, passionate Christian role model. Loves children with his whole heart. Motivated by his love of God to serve others with joy and passion. Committed to excellence in every area of life. An example for others as a true man of God.
Noah was bold and unafraid in his faith, always ready to give praise and thanks to God, to encourage others, to live his faith out loud and unashamed. No one who met Noah could fail to note his love and passion for the Lord, and his desire to follow Christ. As a college athlete, Noah was also an example of hard work, dedication, and resilience. He poured himself into Tribal Competition, challenging his fellow Caddo to always play with never-ending effort, to never let up, and to compete with passion and integrity.
As someone who loved children, Noah had a great impact and influence on those kids in his cabin and on his Tribal Competition teams. Noah was goofy and fun with his kids, full of energy and leading them on many adventures! But at the same time Noah challenged his campers, he worked with them to improve their faith, he helped them through their struggles, and he loved them without fail. Even after they had left Camp Ozark, Noah would call or write his campers, continuing his work of encouraging them to grow in their faith.
Finally, Noah had a deep love for those children less fortunate. Noah was passionate about Ozark for All, and had a genuine talent for working with under-served children. He often spent time helping kids who were struggling socially or behaviorally, and who perhaps lacked positive role-models back home. Noah encouraged these children, challenged them, and loved them unconditionally. And at all times, Noah spoke of the love of God and tried to help these children understand their value and worth in the eyes of the Creator. The impact and influence Noah had on many of these kids is immeasurable.
