Robert C. Jackson Scholarship

Fairfield Warde High School baseball coach Mark Caron has announced that a $1,000 baseball scholarship is available for seniors on the Mustangs’ varsity baseball team.
The Coach Robert C. Jackson Baseball Scholarship is named in honor of Bob Jackson, former Andrew Warde High baseball coach
The criteria is academics, athletic ability, leadership and community service. The scholarship will presented every year at the annual FWHS Baseball Awards Dinner in June.
Jackson coached baseball at Andrew Warde for more than 25 years, where he was a friend, role model and coach to many excellent baseball players and fine young men.
He was one of the coaches that met in 1960 to create the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference (FCIAC).
Jackson also served as athletic director at Warde and Director for Physical Education for all Fairfield schools.
Born in Framingham (Mass.) on July 16, 1923, he was a star baseball player at Framingham High, and after he graduated in 1941 he served in the U.S. Navy during WWII.
Jackson graduated from Springfield College with a bachelor’s degree in 1948 and a master’s degree in 1949.
He married Rita Kammritz in 1944 and they raised their two children in Fairfield.
Rita Bradtmuller is starting the scholarship to promote baseball in young players and inspire good sportsmanship and values, as Jackson would have wanted.
