The Department of Sports Administration and the Moorhead Family are seeking applicants for the 2011-12 Brad Moorhead Scholarship. The deadline is April 22, 2011 and all applications should be emailed to Dr. Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Moorhead Family established this $1,000 scholarship in memory of their son, Brad, who was tragically killed in a car accident while completing his Sport Management internship before his senior year at Ohio. The annual Sports Business Association B.A.M. 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament is also held in his honor. The award seeks to support an Ohio University Sport Management student who shares the many positive attributes that Brad possessed.
A little information on Brad......
Brad was a 2001 graduate of Centerville H.S. and was in the Class of 2005 at Ohio University. While at both institutions he did his best to give back to the school through participation in various activities. He had a passion for athletics (especially the Florida Gators), was a friend to all, and will always be remembered for his kind heart. He loved his family and large circle of friends, and always put others ahead of himself. He had a love for life and valued the relationships that he developed along the way.
Brad loved his family, Shelley, Gary and Scott and was known as a great friend. Brad saw the good in everyone. He preferred to talk less about him and more about them. He was easy going yet boldly competitive. While he loved a variety of sports, and anything to do with athletics, he also made sure the experience was filled with fun. The people he was sharing the experience with were always more important than the event. His listening skills made him a person that people enjoyed talking with. He was a great student yet he had a wonderful sense of humor. He could laugh with you in moments of joy and cry with you in moments of pain.
