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.
