There was a special moment during Opening Day for Dare County Parks & Rec Softball on Sunday, March 26th at Wescott Park.  Dare County Parks & Rec Softball President Melissa Gray announced that a scholarship will be funded in honor of Bruce Creef who has coached countless numbers of youth in baseball and softball for decades. He still coaches and one of his greatest joys is having the opportunity to coach his granddaughter, Bailey.

“Bruce has made a positive impact on so many youth in the area,” Gray noted. The scholarship in his honor will be funded by a portion of the money raised during the coming season and will be awarded to a high school senior softball player.

Patrick Sinclair is the minister at Mt. Carmel Methodist Church in Manns Harbor.

    Well deserved Bruce. You’ve been at it a long time and nothing is more rewarding than helping and serving youth.
