Richard (Dick) Green Memorial Scholarship Fund
On August 25, 2012 The State of West Virginia lost one of its most ardent soccer promoters and coach, Richard “Dick” Green. The Richard (Dick) Green Memorial Scholarship was established to recognize Dick’s contributions by awarding scholarships to players who exemplify the values Dick both lived and coached. Dick served many years as a recreation league coach, a travel team coach, and girls high school soccer team coach at Hurricane. After retiring from the Institute Plant, he remained active as the assistant coach for both Poca and Nitro High School Ladies Soccer Programs. Dick instilled in many young women character traits that will serve them the rest of their lives; i.e. hard work, sportsmanship, teamwork, and goal setting. He made hard work fun and passed to them his love of soccer each and every day. “You have to work hard to play hard. You have to play hard to win.” The Richard “Dick” Green Memorial Scholarship recognizes young women that demonstrate their love of soccer and represent the values that Dick emphasized when coaching. The player(s), must be in good academic standing having a minimum overall GPA 3.0, played a minimum of three (3) consecutive high school seasons, and be from a Putnam County High School or Nitro High School in Kanawha County. In May 2013, the first educational scholarships were awarded. The Foundation has been established under The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation, a nonprofit tax-exempt organization, for administration purposes. A separate Board of Directors consisting of volunteers who knew Dick and his love of soccer oversees fundraising and scholarship selections. Funds from this 5k race will go to support these scholarships. We ask that you make a donation to support this Memorial Scholarship! Thank you in advance for your contribution!
