Good morning friends and family!!
Below you will find a link to Dane's Scholarship that I have started here in TX. In case you didn't know, Dane went to high school here in Texas the first year Warren High School opened. He served on their very first drill team and managed to be a part of the first competition that traveled to Colorado Nationals at USAFA, where he won first place. I have spoken to the cadets at the school, the administration, and the faculty. During my speech I found that there were at least three of his former teachers that did not know he had been KIA. They shared wonderful stories and memories of Dane with me. Every parent's dream is to know that their kid left an amazing impression on others.
If you would like to donate to this worthy cause, please see the attachment for instructions. The NISD Education Foundation (NEF) is tax deductible. Not only is this scholarship something that Dane would have wanted, it's such a wonderful legacy that he has left behind. This scholarship will also give a student a chance at an education. Through efforts like this, Dane's memory continues to stay alive in my heart and yours too.
If you are unable to donate, I understand and please know that I appreciate all your prayers and support that you have provided me and my family in so many other ways. For that I can't thank you enough! You all have truly been my rock over the years!
Love to you all!
