Clarksville High School Football Alumni Scholarship Award
On April 10, 2013, the Clarksville High School Football Alumni Club, was created as an original idea by John W. Carney, Jr. (‘68) along with several former CHS Football Players, Jimmy Bryant ( ‘67), and Taylor Stokes (‘69). These former players had a desire to reconnect with former football players , coaches, families, and friends of Clarksville High School. Financial support has been provided through certain fundraiser programs, membership donations and awards, thereby, allowing alumni members to participate in a shared commitment, towards maintaining the steep tradition of excellence, that Clarksville High School has acquired during its century old existence. Our first football team was established in 1909. The Clarksville High School Alumni Scholarship Award, was designed and established, to recognize dynamic leadership skills in the student athlete.
