Chuck D. Hargrove Memorial Scholarship

Family and friends of Charles Hargrove established this memorial scholarship to celebrate his life and remember this highly respected young citizen of Waynesville. A 1979 graduate of Tuscola High School, Chuck graduated in 1983 from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Business Administration. In 1985, while on a business trip, he died in a tragic airplane crash at the age of 24. 

Friends of all ages remember Chuck as a person of impeccable character who loved life and had a beautiful smile; he could turn any situation into the happiest moment, just by being himself. Chuck, who thought more about other people and less about himself, considered his family and friends as the most important assets of his life. 

Tuscola High School was very important in Chuck’s life and that of his family. While at Tuscola, he was a member of the marching band and the Key Club, and was nominated “best personality” by his classmates. His siblings, Vicki and Douglas, both graduated from Tuscola; his mother, Robbie Hargrove, taught at the school for eighteen years. It was their hope that the Chuck Hargrove Memorial Scholarship would offer support and encouragement to future graduates of Tuscola High School.
