Eastern Carolina Community Foundation

We invite you to apply for the inaugural Justin O’Connor Memorial Fund Scholarship. Two awards of $1,000 each will be given. An academic award will be for achievement based on the qualities of Justin who is remembered for his outgoing nature, love of working in groups, and great sense of humor. He was well liked by all groups of people, funny, athletic and always had a smile on his face! He was also a diligent student and fantastic guitarist. An athletic award will be given to a student athlete who has been accepted to a 4-year college or university to play a specific sport. Justin O’Connor was a loving son and caring brother. He was only 17 years old, a generous friend and gifted athlete whose joy and love for life were contagious. Justin was entering his senior year of high school with a dream of playing college baseball. That dream ended on an early morning in July 2017 because of distracted driving. Now his dreams can become yours.
