Marcus E. Delpeche

2013 Scholarship Recipient


When we first saw Marcus, we just knew he was a basketball player because of his height, strong hands, and athletic physique. We soon learned that Marcus is, indeed, adept in basketball and even had the opportunity to play at the college level. However, Marcus has decided to pursue a degree in Business Management at Bates College in Maine. Marcus has a twin brother who will also be attending Bates College.

Marcus is the son of Mr. & Mrs. Christopher Delpeche. His mother is from Jamaica and his father is from Trinidad and Tobago. He attended Wilmington Friends School where he graduated with a GPA of 3.2. In high school, he challenged himself by taking the International Baccalaureate Certificate Program, which requires students to take 3 Higher Level Courses in the fields of History, Biology and English. Marcus did so without sacrificing his regular class work or athletic activities.

Marcus has been described by his teachers as affable, focused, and someone with integrity, remarkable insight, and a positive attitude. These attributes will serve him well as he embarks upon college life and the new challenges it presents.
