70 Scholarships and Counting

 
Ye Notorious Krewe of the Peg Leg Pirate, Inc. is pleased to announce Scholarship Fund awards.  The Fund is used to assist with the educational expenses of college and trade/technical school students who are amputees.  The members of the Krewe believe that education and training provide that additional step to success.

The students have attended schools in a number of states including Florida, Massachusetts, Colorado, Ohio, Rhode Island, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Maryland, North Carolina and Jamaica.  All those awarded scholarships maintained at least a “B” average during their high school years.
