Valley Basketball Club Scholarship Program

 

 

 

Since its inception, Valley Basketball Club has been about more than providing the best basketball opportunity available for young people in Augusta County.  From adopting families at Thanksgiving and Christmas, to Fellowship of Christian Athletes, to our successful administration and growth of the youth recreational basketball program in Stuarts Draft (SDBL), to reaching out to support families in need – we have extended our stewardship beyond the hardwood. 

 

One point of emphasis has been academics – school work has always been accepted as an excuse from practices or tournaments.  We believe that one’s education is one of the few things that can never be taken from them, and is a cornerstone in the foundation of the adult they will become.  In support of that belief, our organization is pleased to announce the extension of our community outreach to athletes who have come through our program in the form of a college scholarship program.  

 

Scholarships will be funded in minimum increments of $500, the number and value of scholarships will be contingent on available funding. The application is attached.

 

Eligibility:

 

Applicants must have played a minimum of 3 seasons for VBC

Applicants must have never quit a VBC team

Applicants must have a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative HS grade point average

Applicants must provide

  • A completed scholarship application

Student’s Signature Date



MALCOLM SCOTT WINE SCHOLARSHIP


DUE Friday, May 5, 2017


In 1977 Scott’s friends and family established this scholarship in his memory after his unexpected death at the age of 33.  He was a 1961 graduate of Waynesboro High School, having been elected as president of the Senior Class and voted “Most Likely to Succeed.”  He graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA in English and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.  Upon graduation, Scott deferred entry into the US Navy for one year when he was awarded a Rotary International Fellowship. He studied language and culinary arts in Aix-en-Provence, France. Upon his return, Scott was sworn in as an officer in the Navy for four years and completed a tour in Viet Nam.  Upon his discharge from military service, he entered UVA Law School where he earned a law degree. While in the Navy he developed a highly successful community outreach program for young people in San Diego and during law school ran the Youth Employment Service program that found jobs for underprivileged young people. His interests turned to Virginia politics, which provided him the opportunity to be campaign manager for the US Senate campaign of Admiral Elmo Zumwalt.


In Scott’s honor, Dr. Douglas Gordon (WHS ’61), Scott’s dearest friend, and Jeanne Wine, his wife (who attended WHS from 61-63) and retired lawyer, select a student each year to receive the Malcolm Scott Wine Scholarship. This year is the 40th anniversary of the awarding of this scholarship honoring a man who led an exemplary life.   



REQUIREMENTS:


  • Completed Application

  • Essay

  • Resume

  • One letter of recommendation




DIRECTIONS:  A completed application, essay, resume, and recommendation letter must be emailed to the sponsors below and to Mrs. Watson by Friday, May 5, 2017.    The amount of the award is expected to be around $1,000. All material submitted will be kept confidential.
