The Coach Knighton Scholarship Fund is a funding opportunity for an active, in-season IDM Panther participant whose family has expressed financial hardships resulting in the inability to pay the required program fees.
The fund is named after our beloved coach, Adron Knighton, who served with the Panthers from 2010 until 2017 when he began to experience health challenges. Coach Knighton passed away in August of 2018 however; his legacy remains as we seek to build safer neighborhoods through positive relationships, opportunities, and experiences that promote hope in the lives of our youth.
