Chuck Pacholkiw: After graduating from Bowie High, he attended the University of Maryland, where he continued to shine academically even after his diagnosis of advanced stage IV adenocarcinoma cancer. Chuck died in November 2010 at the age of 23, just a few credits away from finishing his physics degree.

In 2011, we established a scholarship fund in Chuck’s memory for Bowie High students pursuing a math, science or physics major in college; our third annual fundraising 5K race/walk will take place on April 5th, 2014, at 9:00 a.m., starting at the Bowie High track and football field. 100% of the proceeds from this race will go toward the Chuck Pacholkiw Memorial Scholarship to help a deserving graduating senior get a chance at becoming the next Stephen Hawking. It is our hope that this scholarship will honor Chuck’s memory by keeping his academic ambitions alive.
