About the Scholarship

Quent AlcornQuentin Thomas Alcorn was a natural leader who effortlessly gained the admiration and respect of all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

In his local Richmond scouting Troop 400, Quent became senior patrol leader and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. At St. Christopher’s High School, he served as captain of his wrestling team and a two-time Virginia State Wrestling Champion. While attending the University of Virginia, he majored in Chemical Engineering and led as president of the Xi Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity.

Quent cherished these opportunities to be involved and to connect with those around him. He loved Greek Life and understood the importance of bonds he forged within his fraternity and among the community. In addition, he always made time to give back, whether coaching wrestling at Albemarle High School or volunteering through Madison House. Above all else, Quent was a genuine friend, devoted brother, and beloved son.

To honor Quent, friends and family have established the Quentin Alcorn Memorial Scholarship to recognize members of the Greek community at UVA who have positively impacted the University and Charlottesville communities. The scholarship will be awarded to an active member in good standing who best exemplifies Quent’s characteristics of dedication, selfless service, love of learning, and a capacity for fun and humor.
