This scholarship was started in 2007 thanks to the initial contributions from the Redmond-Harris and Dixon-Perry families but it is truly because of the continued financial support of the Pleasant Grove Church disciples, families, and friends that we've been able to sustain this scholarship.

In almost a decade, we have been able to award nearly $40,000.00 in scholarship money. I am so proud that we are able to honor my uncle's memory through the scholarship and know that he is truly proud of the young at Pleasant Grove Church who strive to do better and want to do better and acknowledge God as their foundation.
