WILLIAM J. WHITE SCHOLARSHIP FUND

The William J. White Scholarship Fund was established in 1980 following the death of Bill White. Bill was responsible for starting Colt Baseball (15 & 16 year olds) in 1965. The Guilford County Sports Hall of fame inducted Bill in 2010 for his various contributions to our area youth. The fund awards scholarships to former Colt Leaguers who are entering a college or university. The criteria include academic excellence, exemplary citizenship, and financial need. Bobby Dawson was the first recipient in 1981, and since then about 180 scholarships have been awarded exceeding $ 135,000, including the ones below. The 2012 recipients of the Bill White Scholarships are as follows:
