Glory Days Scholarship

Nominations Accepted Through March 1st

The Glory Days Endowed Scholarship (Glory Days Scholarship) was established in 2020 thanks to the generosity of classmates, teammates, and coaches from the late 1980s and early 1990s of Bluefield University. Initiated by former baseball and basketball coach, Mark Blevins, The Glory Days Endowed Scholarship is meant to honor the student-athletes of the 1980s and early-1990s who coined their time at Bluefield University as the “Glory Days” due to significant athletic achievements, lasting friendships, and comradery. The glory days were some of the most successful in the history of Bluefield University athletics, specifically on the basketball court and the baseball field. In fact, many of the student-athletes from that era, as well as coach Mark Blevins, are listed in Bluefield University’s Athletics Hall of Fame. The founders of the Glory Days Scholarship wish to honor the life-long friendships, lasting memories, athletic achievements, and perseverance of the student-athletes from the glory days at Bluefield University. Further, they challenge student-athletes of today and tomorrow to make and cherish their own glory days.
