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.

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.

The Vicky Lynn Watson "Go Big C" Scholarship
On June 4, 2013, Hendersonville High School Soccer lost one of its most enthusiastic supporters to cancer, Vickie Lynn Watson. A Hendersonville alumnae from the Class of ‘73, Vickie began supporting HHS Soccer when her nephew, Richie Reichenberger, began playing in 2007. Her support continued through nephew Randy Reichenberger’s HHS soccer career, starting in 2011. During games, Vickie always loved yelling, “Go Big C!” to get the crowd and players riled up. She also showed her support by sending encouraging emails during tournament play. She always represented the team by proudly wearing her black and gold attire! Vickie was all about the “TEAM”, team effort, team encouragement, and team support. The recipient of this award is a Hendersonville High School Soccer player in good academic standing. Said player must display throughout his or her four year career at Hendersonville High School team effort, encouragement, and support; and love of the game and teammates.

The Cole Parrott Memorial Scholarship
Cole Parrott was killed in an automobile accident, June 2012 . The events surrounding his tragic death changed lives forever. The creation of the Cole Parrott Memorial Scholarship is an attempt to honor Cole's memory and to say, in a small way, thank you to the HHS soccer community. Cole began his soccer career at the age of five (5). Cole was blessed to have been a part of the HHS soccer program for four years and completing that portion of soccer career as a member of the 2010 State Championship team. The selection of the recipient of the Cole Parrott Scholarship is based on the personal characteristics of being a “team player”, a leader by example, respecting authority and traditions, and treating others equally and with dignity. We believe that these principles were present in Cole's life and were some of the attributes that made him a “difference maker”. This criteria is applied to each nominee relative to the soccer field, school activities other than athletics and as a member of the Hendersonville community in general.

The Brittany Danelle Plummer Scholarship
March 1991 (Coach’s 4th year), Coach and Denise gave birth to a beautiful daughter, Brittany Danelle. But as things sometimes happen, complications became apparent. Brittany lived for five weeks before she left us for a better place, leaving the Plummer’s with memories of what might have been and a feeling of Hendersonville was home. 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 knew 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". In wanting to give something back and to show eternal gratitude to everyone here, the Plummer’s established The Brittany Danelle Plummer Scholarship. The recipient of this award is a Hendersonville High School Soccer player with good academic standing. Said player is chosen annually by the Plummer’s as someone who envelops the meaning of fighting in spite of physical anguish through mental fortitude. The 2014 recipient of this award was Emilie Sloan. (past recipients)
