BOONSBORO — Whether you have old ties to Boonsboro or have just moved to the area, if you are an athlete, you know the name Dwight Scott.  

Several years ago, the Boonsboro Athletic Boosters Inc. created a scholarship in honor of Scott that is awarded annually to an outstanding male and female athlete graduating with their class at BHS.  

The scholarship is administered by the Community Foundation of Washington County.

Candidates are selected by the coaching staff and athletic director.  

On June 1,  $750 awards were made to Ashley Smothers and Colby Gussio.  Both students are multisport athletes — a fitting tribute to the coach who has coached multiple sports over the years.  

Scott continues to be an influence, although these days, he works as an assistant and consultant to the track teams.  

For more information about the Dwight Scott Scholarship or to contribute to the fund, contact the Community Foundation of Washington County at 301-745-5210.
