The Scholarship of Honor Program through the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation recognizes a graduating high school senior with plans to enlist in the military or pursue a career in public safety or community service. These fields include law enforcement, fire safety, nursing, teaching, police science, ministry, social work, etc.
The award is in honor of the service and selfless sacrifice of our past and present military heroes.
The Scholarship of Honor program has allowed our message to touch the lives of many around the world. Scholarships are now awarded in a nationwide effort from Gettysburg to Honolulu, as well as three foreign countries.
'To honor, to remember, those who serve while recognizing dedication, community service and selflessness in those who follow in their footsteps'
"I wanted to let you know Marissa's comments to me after walking up to me holding the medal that was around her neck, "this is the most special thing I have received...I will keep this somewhere very special, it means to much to me."
She was so moved by the presentation and what it meant to the family. I am not sure I have ever seen a kid get the magnitude of something as much as she did. She was so honored and touched. Thank you for letting me part of such a beautiful tribute."
