David R. Habegger was born and raised on a farm on Tile Mill Road in Adams County. His family included five brothers and four sisters. As kids, they hung a basketball goal in the chicken yard and played ball with neighbors and friends from church. Thus began the brothers’ strong love of the game.
After Dave and his brothers returned from WWII, they formed a semi-pro basketball team and played teams from all over Indiana.
Dave coached Little League in Berne for a number of years and was active on Berne’s Recreation Department Board. With a desire to continue his work with young people and sports, Dave became an Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) football and basketball official and was inducted into the IHSAA Hall of Fame.
This scholarship is awarded to a graduating high school senior from South Adams High School.
