(5/5/14) — The Foundation for Daviess County Public Schools is pleased to announce recipients of the 2014 Brandon Scott Mullins Memorial Scholarship.

Renee Strohmeyer and Ryan Offerman, both seniors at Apollo High School, are recipients of the 2014 Mullins Scholarship. Ms. Strohmyer has been accepted to the University of Kentucky; she will determine a major at a later date. Mr. Offerman has enlisted with the United States Air Force.

Cathy and Tommy Mullins, Brandon’s parents, have donated $1,000 to the Foundation to provide two $500 scholarships in memory of Brandon. These two scholarships are awarded annually at Awards Night to Apollo students who display qualities of perseverance and leadership while overcoming significant obstacles in life as he/she pursues successful educational and/or career goals.

While serving Operation Enduring Freedom, Brandon was killed on August 25, 2011, in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, when insurgents attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device.
