The King George High School Sports Hall of Fame Scholarship Fund
The King George High School Sports Hall of Fame Scholarship was created in March 2012 to recognize the acheivements of the county’s high school athletes and to support the college education of exemplary competitors. The fund was initiated through two generous gifts:
A donation from Mr. Richard Hayden in recognition of the athletes of Ralph Bunche and King George High Schools who demonstrate spirited competition and highest standards of sportsmanship.
A donation from the Glancy Family in memory of John Glancy, a beloved former King George county basketball star.
Each year, at least one scholarship of at least $1,000 will be awarded to the King George senior who best represents the values of the Hall of Fame by making an outstanding contribution to her or his sport. For example by attaining regional or all-state honors, being a leading scorer, winning a state championship, etc. The winner should also exemplify personal character while representing King George, he or she must be a positive role model, worthy of being emulated by future students.
The King George High School Sports Hall of Fame was founded to honor outstanding athletes at Ralph Bunche and King George High Schools, which were consolidated into one school in 1968. The Hall of Fame’s founders hope to inspire today’s student athletes and those of the future. Visitors may learn more about inductees at the Hall of Fame’s physical location in the new King George High School. Additional Hall of Fame information may be found at www.kinggeorgehalloffame.com .
