Scholarship Fund

32270282_1537932950701196_r.jpegThe Robert Gregore Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to assist college-bound student-athletes at Concord High School, Wilmington, Del. The nonprofit fund was established in 2017 to memorialize Mr. Gregore for his contributions as a soccer coach, math teacher and mentor to countless students and student-athletes at Concord High School.

Mr. Gregore, who died Dec. 2, 2016, spent 12 of his 22 years as a coach at Concord. He was the school’s first head coach and retired in 1980. During his tenure, he was voted Delaware Coach of the Year three times and his teams won four state championships and six Blue Hen Conference championships or co-championships. His teams compiled a 103-14-4 record against conference opponents and 133-27-13 against all opponents.

Each spring, a $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to one female student and one male student. In its first year, the recipients of the scholarship were Sarah Raab and Brandon Dennis. These individuals were selected among several highly qualified applicants to whom the fund’s officers are very grateful for their interest and commitment to academic and athletic excellence.
