To his soldiers, he was "Command Sergeant Major Coates", to the many young people whose lives he touched along the way, he was "Mr. Coates", but to me, he was "daddy". An absolutely phenomenal man, who was an advocate for youth and always encouraged higher learning. This scholarship honors his legacy, and his life. It is a tribute to a superhero, who is gone to soon.

This scholarship will be awarded to high school seniors who demonstrate scholarship and service through community involvement, volunteerism, scholastic achievement, and extra-curricular participation.
