Mustang Student Earns Bronco 4 Ever Memorial Scholarship
(Mustang, Oklahoma – May 21, 2019) – As with many things, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the awarding of the Bronco 4 Ever Scholarship to look a little different this year. Instead of an assembly, Danny Nguyen, Mustang High School (MHS) senior, quietly accepted the Matthew George Scott IV Bronco 4 Ever Scholarship last week in a private ceremony.
Matthew George Scott IV was a 2012 graduate of Mustang High School and a proud member of the Mustang Broncos Basketball and Baseball teams. Matt was also an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing. He was a freshman at Oklahoma State University pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering when he was killed in a car accident on December 30, 2012.
After his death, Matt’s family established the Matthew George Scott Bronco 4 Ever Scholarship fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation to honor his memory. The scholarship benefits a graduating senior of Mustang High School pursuing post-secondary education.
“Matt was an outstanding young man in all aspects of his life and he is deeply missed by his family and multitudes of friends,” said Mustang Public School Chief Operations Officer (and former Bronco Basketball Coach), Alan Green. “His legacy of excellence now lives on in the scholarship that his family has established.”Pictured: 4133 - Lan Truong, Kathy Nguyen, Danny Nguyen, Stacey Scott, Callie Scott, Matt Scott
