Hi, My name is Johnetta Dillard. I'm raising funds through the ME Davis Foundation for the Dillard Life Memorial Scholarship Fund. The scholarship was set up in memory of my father, John W. Dillard, who was a community leader, businessman and champion for education. For the duration of his 92 years, he gave selflessly to mentor children and young adults. Having been a coach and school administrator, he motivated young people to achieve their greatest potential. He also took in apprentices at his business to help mold and develop them. He believed that education was the key to ending poverty. This important effort is focused in rural SE Arkansas communities where high school students need additional support, jobs are scarse and business role models are even scarser. This fund will help support youth with such things as college app fees, school supplies, internships, and more. We will work with educators and community service centers to identify those in need and to screen applicants. Thanks for supporting this important initiative.
