This award began to honor Gary Whitworth PC '68, who tragically passed away in a plane crash while on his way to visit one of his pledge brothers. To honor his memory, Flip Whitworth, Gary's older brother, and Peter Pincoffs PC '68, Gary's pledge brother, established a scholarship for an exemplary Fiji going on to attend graduate school. Flip was in law school at UT and Peter was still an undergraduate at UT when they started this award. Since 1975, 43 Fiji men have been awarded more than $50,000! These brothers understood that Fiji is Not for College Days Alone! Gary Whitworth PC '68 was an Austin High graduate and attending law school at the time of his death. He loved life and embodied the qualities of our Chapter champions. He was loved by all, a hard worker, a great athlete, and respected by his pledge class and peers. Above all, he loved Texas Fiji. 2018 was the last year for the award. However, Flip and Peter wanted to do something that could continue to honor Gary's name and benefit Fijis for years to come. Accordingly, the remainder of scholarship fund was put to use by way of a complete refurbishing and enhancement of the basketball court and surrounding area including lights, a sound system, and landscaping. The active brothers love playing basketball outside on the court each and every day and have been extremely happy with the renovations.
