No one can put a price on someone’s life or well-being. The struggle and challenges that surround a traumatic event, like a traffic collision or a personal injury, can leave them in a shadow of themselves. To overcome that tragedy makes you stronger for yourself and others who hear your story.
We are proud to announce our new scholarship, the Overcoming the Impossible Scholarship. We want the opportunity to hear how people faced the impossible and how others can learn from their experiences.
This $1,000 scholarship award will be given to one eligible student. The deadline to apply is November 30, 2023. Continue reading below for details on the application process.
