Dante Porter Scholarship

Dante Porter was one of Georgia’s foremost athletes in both basketball and baseball. He passed away suddenly his senior year as he was leading the county in scoring, rebounding and assists. His true legacy lies in the memories that friends and alumni have of his passion for life and his kindness to others on and off the court. His uncle, former Chamblee Basketball Coach and psychology teacher, Perry Abrams, and his wife Julia, solidified Dante’s legacy by founding The Dante Porter Scholarship Fund.

Every year, students, faculty, alumni and the Chamblee community gather to raise money for The Dante Porter Scholarship, that is awarded to graduating, college-bound Chamblee seniors.
