Scholar-Athlete Awards Program

Since its start in 1992, Sports Backers and the Richmond Times-Dispatch have partnered to recognize the accomplishments of the region's finest student-athletes, awarding over $1,300,000 in college scholarships. And despite the challenges COVID-19 has placed on high school athletics this year we are excited to still move forward with the Scholar-Athlete Awards Program. On June 7, 2021, we recognized twenty student-athletes, along with the Williams Mullen Community Impact Award winner and Raymond D. Patterson and Cheryl Oliver Memorial Scholarship recipients with a virtual program.

 

This year's program was livestreamed on Richmond.com (click on the orange "Watch" button above). We hope that you will join us in celebrating the 30th annual Richmond Times-Dispatch/Sports Backers Scholar-Athlete program and help us create a lasting legacy for future Richmond natives who will go on to change the world, just as those before them are doing today. All donations and proceeds from the event will be used to support the Sports Backers Scholarship Fund.
