David Dearmore Memorial Scholarship

David Mark Dearmore was a resident of Valley Center and director of Super Service. He was a member of the Valley Center Jaycee's and was active in each of their numerous programs directed toward the under-privileged. Mr. Dearmore held the position of secretary for the Jaycee's, an accomplishment that made him very proud. He was a true fan of Shocker athletics, whom unfortunately, passed away on June 4, 1985, at the early age of 32.

Mr. Dearmore's parents, Howard and Marjorie, and wife, Louise, established a scholarship on his behalf. The David Dearmore Memorial Scholarship carries on the memory of an avid Shocker supporter while providing assistance for many Wichita State University student athletes.
