Our Memorial Scholarships


The Clyde "Whitey" Horton Memorial Scholarship


Clyde "Whitey" Horton (on the left with Jim "Skully" Hungerford) was a major community presence in the late 60's and became a founding member of the Anna Maria Island Privateers when they formed a charter in 1971.  From the beginning the Privateers and the community counted on his involvement whenever he was needed.  "Whitey" had just retired form the Coca-cola Bottling Company and was the Vice President of the organization as well as a member of our "rival Krewe" the  Hernando DeSoto Society when he passed away in 1994.  The primary fund raiser for this scholarship has been an annual golf tournament as well as dedicated donations made in his honor.

The Greg "Shiprek" Davidson Memorial Scholarship

Greg "Shiprek" Davidson was a leader that donated his time and energy to the end.  His final voyage aboard the Skullywag was to Tampa as part of Tampa Krewes for Angel Flight.  The Privateers delivered a "shipload" of hurricane relief supplies the Krewe had collected for the Gulf Coast.  Davidson passed away unexpectedly during his third term as President of the Anna Maria Island Privateers in 2005.  "Shiprek" was also a member of the American Legion and was the Vice President of the West Manatee Fire & Rescue Volunteers.  The primary fund raiser for this scholarship is the "Shiprek" Poker Run as well as dedicated donations made in his honor.
