Mark Bates Scholarship Fund

The Mark E. “Killer” Bates ’75 Memorial Scholarship has been established in Mark’s memory to provide significant financial assistance to New Hampshire students attending Plymouth State University and are seeking a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education or Business. The goal is to help deserving individuals within Mark’s community achieve their career goals and objectives, which has the added benefit of bettering his community at large.

Mark began his career at Weaver Brothers Construction Co. in the summer of 1971 at age 18, working every summer until 1975 when he became full time. He worked his way up from laborer to co-owner and President of Weaver Brothers Construction, which he acquired, with his brothers in 1994.
