In 2014, family and friends of Brett Sherburne established a scholarship in his memory for Hancock Central Graduates.

Brett was a member of the Hancock Central School graduating class of 2010. While in school, he participated in baseball, football, and RYLA. He was a recipient of the Hancock Community Education Foundation Scholarship sponsored by The George A. and Margaret Mee Foundation and attended Alfred State and Broome Community College. Brett was also a member of Boy Scout troop # 7 and he loved the outdoors. In Brett's free time he could be found in a boat on the Delaware River fishing, hunting, and trapping the hills of Readburn Valley. Brett loved spending time with his family, life, and lived every day to the fullest. If you would like to donate directly to the scholarship please make checks out to HCEF /Brett Sherburne Scholarship Fund.
