General, Colin L. Powell  
The Horatio Alger Association mourns the loss of General Colin L. Powell, 1991 Horatio Alger Award recipient. A decorated military leader and statesman, General Powell was committed to upholding and advancing the Association's mission of providing college scholarships to promising young people with critical financial needs facing significant adversities. He was a frequent attendee of Association events and was always available when called upon to assist in serving our Scholars. We are grateful to General Powell for his support of our organization and extend our deepest condolences to his Life Partner Alma, and his family and friends.

I met Colin Powell on April 20, 1999. He was in Appleton to give a speech to a group of students as part of his America´s Promise campaign. As he arrived at the airport, I was watching a television as scenes from Columbine High School were being broadcast. Powell joined me for a few minutes. He also gave me the little red wagon pin. The wagon symbolizes America´s promise to the nation´s youth. May he rest in peace.
