Greensboro Colt Baseball announces Bill White Scholarship Recipients for 2022


The Bill White Scholarship Fund was established in 1980 following Bill’s death from cancer. Bill was responsible for starting Colt Baseball (15 & 16 year-olds) locally in 1965. This 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 (including 2022) nearly 300 scholarships have been awarded totaling over $ 275,000. The amounts range from $500 to $2,500.

The 2022 recipients of the Bill White Scholarships are as follows:

Student           High School                      College/University
