2018 PFLAG TUCSON/LGBT&S Alliance Fund Scholarship Celebration

The PFLAG/Alliance Fund scholarship program took place at our regularly scheduled support meeting Wednesday, May 2nd from 7-8:30pm. Eight deserving LGBTQ students were awarded a $1,000 scholarship toward their higher education for Fall 2018. This year’s scholarships were given in memory of Norman “Mick” Meader and his partner, Richard Holmes. Mick was our devoted PFLAG secretary for many, many years. We congratulate all those who were awarded these scholarships and thank our members and friends for their contributions that made this possible.
