Theron L. Pickle

Memorial Scholarship Application  


The Theron L. Pickle Memorial Scholarship was established in 1998 following the untimely death of Coach Theron Pickle, who coached club swimming through high-school swimming in Texas for over thirty-five years and, thereby, touched and influenced the lives of many swimmers.

Coach Pickle is a former president of TISCA and a past recipient of the State Coach of the Year Award. In addition to this scholarship for student swimmers, the Theron L. Pickle Lifetime Achievement Award has been created to honor Texas high-school coaches.


Two scholarships totaling $2,000.00 will be given each year to one male student/swimmer and one female student/swimmer. This is a one-time scholarship per recipient with the money sent directly to the college/university of choice to help cover first-year expenses.
