Peter J. Carril Memorial Scholarship Fund

In August of 2022, the sports world lost a favored son, a coaching legend, whose career accomplishments put him on the map as one of the greatest basketball minds ever.

We are pleased to announce that in partnership with Liberty High School and The Foundation for the Bethlehem Area School District, there will be a scholarship honoring this famous basketball coach whose perseverance, passion, and “can do” spirit began in Bethlehem.
