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

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.
