David L. Dean, Jr. Memorial Scholarship

The Donors wish to honor their friend and son, David, by establishing this scholarship in his memory. David was a multi-talented person who loved art, singing, reading, and playing the guitar. He was a poet with works published in Poets of America. David was also very intelligent carrying a 4.0 GPA in the first 11 years of school. At 13 he was an Eagle Scout and at 14 received the God and Country Award. He loved being a student at UNCP, especially enjoying his English and History courses. His message to students today would be to “stay in school and give it your all” and to “finish what you start.” The recipients of the David L. Dean, Jr. Memorial Scholarship shall be residents of Robeson County majoring in English. Recipients must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and be full time undergraduate students at UNCP in any year of study. The recipients must be of demonstrated financial need and the award is renewable if funds are available.
