Memorial Scholarship

 

The Class of 1960 Memorial Scholarship honors the sacrifice and bravery of our classmates, Donnie Lee Darrow, Alexander McIver Jr., William Marshall Roark, and Martin Nelson Tull, who were killed in action while in the service of our country.

The scholarship will be managed by the Athletic and Scholarship Division of the U. S. Naval Academy Foundation, and will be provided to a prospective Midshipman who will benefit from a year of study at a prestigious prep school prior to entrance to the Naval Academy. The selection of the candidate will be made by the Dean of Admissions of the Academy.  The first recipient of the scholarship will be in 2012.

Letters announcing the scholarship have been sent to the families of these four classmates killed during the Viet Nam war.  The following letter of appreciation was addressed to our Class President:


"Dear John,

Thank you and all of the class of 1960 for honoring my father, Donnie Darrow, Alexander McIver, and Martin Tull, with the establishment of this new scholarship. It means a great deal to me and my family.

I know that I speak for all of my family that we are truly blessed by the friendship and warmth given to us over the years. We are humbled by the service and character of the men of Super 60.

Sincerely,

Bill Roark"
