Will Crodick Agricultural Scholarship - The Will Crodick Agricultural Scholarship Endowment was established to honor Will Crodick by helping young people interested in agriculture achieve success in their education. Will Crodick was a dynamic man. He served on the Currituck County Board of Education from 2016 to 2020 and won the election to do so again just before he passed away late last year (2022). Will had a "students first" attitude and as Commissioner Owen Etheridge stated, "(Will) was dedicated in his goals for Currituck County Schools." Will also owned and loved his peach orchard, farm, and winery. He produced wines, peach slushies, and jams among other quality products for not only our community but for those that would travel long distances to enjoy his pick your own fruits and activities for children. Will had a strong voice in our community and we are honored to have a part in continuing his legacy.
