Scott lived and coached with a heart full of love and a willingness to share it with others. Therfore, The Scott Argabrite Foundation has been established to allow this heart of love to continue to touch the lives of young student-athletes in both SC and WV.

In Myrtle Beach a scholarship has been established in Coach A's memory. Initially, it will be awarded to a graduating senior of St. James High School who played for Scott and later to an individual desiring to be a teacher.

In Kingwood a Memorial Park is being planned. The Scott Argabrite Memrial Park will include playground equipment for children, a fitness trail, and two covered basketball courts.

Finally, there will also be assistance provided to needy athletes in both WV and SC for summer basketball camps as funds are available.
