Emmanuel Adedipe Scholarship Fund

Who was Emmanuel Adedipe?

Emmanuel was the third of four children and he was born in Brenham, Texas on the 9th of December 1987, to Nigerian parents Samuel and Caroline Adedipe. Growing up, the importance of education was always stressed to him and his siblings by his parents. After graduating from Brenham High School, he attended college and received his Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi. He then went on to receive his Master of Education in Administration from Lamar University. Emmanuel felt called to the field of education and began teaching upon his college graduation. He taught math and science to elementary and middle school age children. In addition to teaching, he enjoyed sports and found that he could merge his love for sports and passion for helping children by coaching. Throughout his career, he coached football, basketball, and soccer. To him teaching was more than just a job and coaching was much more than winning or losing - it was about discipline, perseverance, and teamwork.
