The scholarship is awarded to a senior baseball player who embodies athletic and academic performance as well as strong character and active community service – the same qualities that Brookins exhibited.
Manjarres is the 21st recipient of the award, which has paid out over $115, 000 to deserving baseball players.
Brookins played baseball at Western Carolina as a freshman before he lost his life in a tragic car accident in November of 1998. In his memory a golf tournament sponsored by Rhyne Financial to fund the scholarship was created in 1999 with the support of the Brookins family. The baseball field at Lincolnton High School is also named for Brookins.
