Adrian Newcomb Memorial Scholarship


Adrian takes control! BHS vs Cave Spring 2011

New River United announces that the application for the first annual Adrian Newcomb Memorial Scholarship is open. Adrian was a former NRU player and standout at Blacksburg High School, and went on to play soccer at Mary Washington University. Adrian was committed to a career in child development and education. Unfortunately, Adrian lost her life in an accident before fulfilling her full promise. In her memory, and to assist those following similar career paths, NRU joined with the Newcomb family to put in place an endowment dedicated to supporting a perennial $500 scholarship.
