The Peter Michael Abbott Memorial Fund was founded in 2010 as a non-profit, volunteer-led organization to raise funds for an annual academic scholarship awarded to graduates of ConVal Regional High School who pursue advanced education.
Peter Abbott was a 1979 graduate of ConVal high school who died unexpectedly of a massive heart attack in 2009. Having lettered in Baseball, Basketball, and Soccer, he was a posthumous, inaugural inductee into the ConVal Regional High School Athletic Hall of Fame on June 5, 2011.
