Hello Friends,

When Mark Koons (Boys Tennis Coach Dallastown Pa) informed me that a Scholarship
fund was set up in Connor's Name..I was speechless. He said he wanted this to be a way to let future generations of Tennis players know who Connor Slates was! Yes I tear up every time i tell the story. Connor was an amazing son. Gifted in many ways, tennis player, musician (played Bass) he had integrity and character. A loving son who Jane and I were so proud of. Shortly after graduation we noticed changes in his behavior which as time went on impacted his life and ours in many ways. Connor was diagnosed with a mental illness at the age of 20. it was a journey for our entire family as we live our lives now without Connor. So we Honor him with this Scholarship and Trust that indeed He is remembered for generations to come. Thank you For your support!

He was a four year letter winner on the Dallastown Boys Tennis Team. Connor was truly one of our great players. He and his doubles partner Gavin smith won the 2007 and 2008 YAIAA Doubles Championship, and the 2008 District III Title.
