SSG John Reiners Memorial Scholarship Fund Jog-A-Thon
Organized by: Shawn Phelps
$2510 raised so far!
February 13, 2016
EVENT DATE Feb 13, 2016
We are raising funds to establish a Memorial Scholarship which will be distributed to worthwhile JROTC Cadets in the Central Florida and surrounding areas. It is in memory of SSG John Reiners who was an alumni of Haines City High School and the Hornet Battalion JROTC Program, that was killed in action on 13 Feb 2010. We hold a Memorial in his honor every year on the anniversary of his death. Last year we added a Jog-A-Thon and raised funds for Team Red, White and Blue, a Veteran's Support Group. This year we have decided to raise money to establish a memorial scholarship fund which is managed by the Polk Education Association as a 501c (non-profit) charity in order to continue SSG Reiners’ legacy of giving back to his nation and his community. Any Cadet that wants to apply for a scholarship must participate in the Memorial Ceremony and Jog-A-Thon on 13 February 2016. Scholarship Application can be found on the Polk Education Foundation Website sometime in February. The Memorial Ceremony will begin at 9:55 AM on 12 February and the Jog-A-Thon will run from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM on 13 February. Scholarship grants will be given out in $500 increments.
