Current Scholarship Funds

Scholarship funds are set up to assist young adults from Montgomery County in reaching their personal goals and dreams through higher education or technical training. To obtain a scholarship application, see your high school College and Career Counselor or the Financial Aid office of Lone Star College-Montgomery.

Buddy Moorhead Memorial Scholarship

The Buddy Moorhead Memorial Scholarship was created in 1984 to honor the memory of Conroe High School Coach Buddy Moorhead. Moorhead, who coached the Tigers to a 29-4-1 record from 1980-1982, was honored after his death, with this scholarship in his name. The once dormant scholarship has been been relocated with Montgomery County Community Foundation and Conroe Tigers, both current and past, have worked hard to build the endowment so that scholarships can be awarded on a perpetual basis. Senior students selected for this award must have participated in football at Conroe High School, have a reasonable chance of success in college, be of good character, and must exemplify the "spirit" of the Conroe Tigers.
