The Steve Camp Memorial Scholarship, sponsored by the Clover Touchdown Club, originated in the late 1970’s to honor James Steven Camp. Private First Class James Steven Camp was born January 7, 1948 and played for the Clover High School football team in the mid 1960’s. He enlisted in the United States Marines in 1966. PFC Steve Camp was killed in action during operations in Quang Nam Province, South Vietnam on January 15, 1967. Steve had turned nineteen just 8 days prior to his death. His name appears on the Vietnam Memorial wall in Washington DC along with three other Clover residents who lost their lives protecting our country. The scholarship is awarded to the young man or woman who shows leadership in the community, on the football field and in the classroom. Dedicated to Steve and all of our fallen Eagles throughout the years, the award seeks to aid the recipient in furthering his or her education and carrying forth the time-honored ethics and traditions of Blue Eagle athletics.  Club members ask local business and individuals to donate money for the scholarship as part of the encourager program. The original amount at the time of the scholarship’s founding was five hundred dollars. The money from our encourager program helps the club fund a scholarship now worth twenty- five hundred dollars.
