The Coach Millard Robinson Memorial Fund was created by players, students and family members who were mentored by Coach Robinson in the important qualities of life - love of country, sportsmanship and humanitarianism. The Fund shall serve to perpetuate his spirit and inspiration that helped to make many of his students and players significant contributors to society.
The goals of the fund are first, to perpetuate Coach Robinson's name and memory for all of us for whom his spirit, energy, knowledge and dedication mean so much; and second, to award citizen/athletes recognized for their responsibility and achievements as athletes, citizens and humanitarians. In keeping with these goals, each year, the fund will provide for the presentation of the following awards:
A Citizen-Athlete Scholarship shall be awarded annually to a deserving member of the senior class of Strath Haven High School in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District.
Millard Robinson was about people. Whether working with students or adults, coaching, teaching or community and civic involvement, he put his full energy and enthusiasm into the task. He had a "passion" for whatever he was involved in - he truly had an enthusiasm for life.
The Memorial Fund shall serve to perpetuate Coach's spirit and inspiration that helped to make many of his students and players significant contributors to society. Thus, recipients of the Scholarship shall be recognized for responsibility and achievements as athletes, as citizens and as students.
The recipient does not have to be the star of the team; does not have to be an honor student and does not have to participate in countless community agencies and activities. This award is meant to recognize a student who brings passion and enthusiasm to athletic participation, academics and community involvement. Millard Robinson's mantra was "Get involved and do your best. Give back to the community and your country."
To that end, recipients shall:
THE FUND AND ITS BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAS WORKED HAND-IN-HAND WITH THE PRINCIPAL, VICE PRINCIPALS AND GUIDANCE COUNSELORS OF STRATH HAVEN HIGH SCHOOL, TO IMPLEMENT THIS AWARD. THE FIRST COACH MILLARD ROBINSON SCHOLARSHIP AWARD WAS PRESENTED ON TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2003.
This award will be presented for outstanding value and contribution to his team and the great game of football. The recipient shall demonstrate by his behavior and performance during practice and on game day . . . Inspiration . . . Perseverance . . . Dedication . . . Cooperation . . . Fair Play and Sportsmanship.
He may not have set any records or be the biggest and/or fastest but what he has given to and shared with his fellow players on the athletic field has made them richer for the experience and a better team.
(This is not meant to eliminate a player who has set records and is outstanding in his own right. We are looking for a contribution beyond the scoreboard.)
Congratulations to Brandon Bush of Sun Valley High School.
