Since 1986, the Davey O’Brien High School Scholarship has provided more than $700,000 to outstanding high school senior student-athletes in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and beyond. Recipients are chosen on the basis of character, community service, leadership, scholarship and varsity sports participation. The recipient receives a $30,000 scholarship, while the four finalists receive a $2,500 scholarship each.
With a vision of creating a greater global community, the Davey O’Brien Foundation has helped ensure that deserving area high school students have the opportunity to create their own legacy of greatness with the gift of a college education.
“This would be the part of the award my father would have esteemed the most,” David O’Brien Jr. said. “He would be really excited about what these kids have accomplished. They all see sports as a natural part of life, as a way to use it in a leadership role … to benefit others and compete in the right light. It’s never about winning at all costs.”
