I'm attempting to apply for this scholarship as I meet all the requirements, and the requirements are not complicated.

Wow, I knew Paul Mills. He went to school with my sister from kindergarten through 12th grade. I picked on my sister all through grammar school about Paul. They were very good friends and he was a good guy. I watched him play baseball many years and he was awesome! What a nice way to remember Paul.

The events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of all Americans and redefined a generation. Now, even in the midst of another national crisis, we feel it is appropriate to take the time to remember this tragedy. [...]
