Mason Hackworth Theatre Scholarship - Hackworth

Mason Hackworth Theatre Scholarship

April 3, 2003 – August 6, 2019

On August 6, 2019 Mason Noel Hackworth, 16, of Chesapeake, Virginia passed away unexpectedly from natural causes. 

Mason was the son of David and Mary Beth Hackworth, grandson of Charlie and Dorothy Hackworth and nephew of Charles II and Wendy Hackworth.

Born in Norfolk, Virginia, Mason was a rising junior at Grassfield High School and a member of River Oak Church.

He was a member of the National Honor Society and the International Thespian Society.

In his spare time, Mason loved playing his guitars, singing, playing video games and hanging out with his friends, AKA Party Bus.

Because Mason loved the arts and theater, he performed in school plays from elementary school to high school; based on his activities the Hackworth family and Ms. Laura Agudelo, Grassfield High School’s theatre teacher have established the Mason Hackworth Theatre Scholarship.

We have been asked by so many people as to how they could be of assistance, therefore the foundation of the scholarship was natural in furthering Mason’s goals, dreams and legacy.

Administered by the Southeastern Virginia Community Foundation (SEVACF), the committee composed of select family members and individuals involved with theatre at Grassfield High School will select annually a student(s) involved in the arts programs at Grassfield and award them a scholarship to further their education in memory of Mason.

The Southeastern Virginia Community Foundation is a 501©3 organization and all donations to the Mason Hackworth Theatre Scholarship are tax deductible.

On behalf of Charlie, Dorothy and Charles, thank you for your love and support.
