CLEAR SPRING - A scholarship fund created in the memory of Robert A. "Bobby" Moore by the Jonathan Nesbitt History Club at Clear Spring High School has raised $1,931 in his name.

Moore would have been a member of the 2003 graduating class at the school but the 16-year-old died on Dec. 28, 2001, near Clear Spring as a result of an automobile accident.

"Our school suffered a terrible loss when one of our own was killed in an auto accident," said Richard Snyder, history club adviser.

The scholarship was started by the History Club, to which Moore belonged, Snyder said. The money was raised through ham sandwich sales.

This year, two $500 scholarships will be awarded, Snyder said. The rest of the money will stay in the fund, through which it will provide scholarships annually.

Born April 27, 1985, in Hagerstown, Bobby was the son of Douglas E. and Cindy R. Bowman Moore of Clear Spring.

At the time of the accident, he was a junior at Clear Spring High School, where he played on the tennis and soccer teams. He also was a member of the ski club, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the History Club.

Moore attended St. John's United Church of Christ in Clear Spring, was an assistant junior Scoutmaster of Troop 117 and was in the process of earning his Eagle Scout merit badge.
