Hendersonville High Soccer Scholarship Funds
It is the aim and the ultimate goal of our program to provide a vehicle for our players to continue their higher education, to ensure that deserving student/players get the assistance necessary to aid in the process. It is with this in mind that a scholarship program was established many years ago. This program has grown to four annual gifts, each awarded to a player that best exemplifies the meaning of what a Hendersonville High School Soccer player is within the context of the spirit of each scholarship.
The Patsy Vickory Memorial Scholarship
Those that knew Ms. Vickory referred to her as the mother of Hendersonville Soccer, for it was her vision and determination that gave all of Hendersonville Soccer a running start some 25 years ago. "This soccer thing, will not last" she was told as she approached school and city directors back in the days with her ideas and proposals for a soccer program. After having been turned down often, she decided that if this was to be, it was up to her. And so it began, Ms. Vickory, the first "soccer mom" in our fair city, wearing many hats, including that of "coach" took the field for the first time, and as they say "the rest is history". The recipient of The Patsy Vickory Memorial Scholarship must be a Hendersonville High School Soccer player with good academic standing. Said player must consistently demonstrate the desire to push forth with determination and courage, no matter what's in front of them. The most recent recipients of this award are Lindsey DeLaney and Casey Durand. If you would like to donate to The Patsy Vickory Memorial Scholarship Fund, please click the button below.
The Carol Stefek Memorial Scholarship
On July 2005, Hendersonville High School Soccer lost a dear friend and supporter. For as many years as most of us can remember, Carol Stefek fought an aggressive cancer with a determination and perseverance equaled to none. Ms. Stefek's wish was that before she left us, she would see her daughter, Andrea, graduate from High School. She lived to see her, not only graduate in 2005 , but become an All-American at the sport she so loved. In 2006, The Hendersonville High School Soccer Foundation established "The Carol Stefek Memorial Scholarship" in honor of this great friend who by example showed everyone that with pure guts, willpower, resolve and fortitude anything you set your mind to, can be accomplished. The recipient of this award must be a Hendersonville High School soccer player with good academic standing. Said player must display throughout his or her four year career at Hendersonville High School, that no matter what's thrown in front of them, they will achieve personal goals. The first recipient of this award was Amy Gray. If you would like to donate to The Carol Stefek Memorial Scholarship Fund, please click the button below.
The Brittany Danielle Plummer Scholarship
Shortly after their arrival to Hendersonville, soccer head coach Russ Plummer and wife Denise gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Brittany Danielle. But as things sometimes happen, all was not well. After several days of agony, young Brittany lost her fight and left us for a better place, leaving the Plummers only with memories of what might have been. According to Coach and Ms. Plummer, "the support our family received from the entire Hendersonville community was amazing and equaled to none. For a community to rally behind someone they new little of, was a sign to our family that we had made the right decision when we moved here. We had found ourselves a home". Wanting to give something back and to show eternal gratitude to everyone here, the Plummers established The Brittany Danielle Plummer Scholarship funding it out of their own resources. A few years back, the Hendersonville High School Booster Club Board of Directors assumed the responsibility of funding this gift, as a way to show coach and his wife, how much we appreciate what they mean to us. The recipient of this award is a Hendersonville High School Soccer player with good academic standing. Said player is chosen annually by the Plummers as someone who envelops the meaning of fighting in spite of physical anguish through mental fortitude. Past recipients include Lauren Roth and Devin Woodard. If you would like to donate to The Brittany Danielle Plummer Scholarship, please click the button below.
