Carrico/Collins Scholarship Banquet
Coach Bill Carrico and Coach C.H. Collins are remembered by generations of Denton Broncos as two of the individuals who were most instrumental in leading the successful integration of Denton High School in 1968. They set an example for the community in building a friendship that strengthened to brotherhood as they led Denton High School’s most successful football team in 43 years, which won the bi-district championship in 1972. After football, they became successful and beloved school administrators until their retirements: Coach Carrico as Denton ISD Athletic Director and Coach Collins as Denton High School Dean of Men. Separately, they are memorialized by the beautiful Denton ISD athletic facilities that bear their names.
Denton High Cares is proud to announce the Third Annual Carrico/Collins Memorial Weekend, honoring the memories of Coach Carrico and Coach Collins, two great men whose legacies are intertwined with and integral to the history of our high school.
On Sunday, October 10, 2021, at the beautiful Oakmont Country Club in Corinth, Texas, the Foundation will host the first ever Carrico/Collins Scholarship Celebration Banquet, where scholarships will be awarded to two deserving Denton High School graduates of the Class of 2021. We are especially honored that the scholarship selection committee is composed of representatives of both families, who graciously volunteered their time to develop the scholarship criteria and select the recipients. Join us for an evening of music, laughter, fellowship and fun as we mix with and celebrate the Carrico and Collins families and honor our scholarship recipients.
