    Thanks for the update, Tamara. Community foundations are a great way to make donation $ go farther.

    Looking forward to the details.

    For those that want to be sure where their money goes, this is a bona fide group, one of the most reputable non-profit groups to handle these scholarships in the area.

    You can find more here, scroll down to the name of the foundation, East Tennessee Foundation:

    I hope that being able to help others will help Tamara and family see that there can be some good out there from tragedies as theirs is.

    yes they are one of the best...some one else asked if this was for our children or family....that answer is no....this is for random strangers (as it were) we are prevented by law from benefiting from it.

    in an odd twist,we asked the local school system about 10 years ago if they wanted some money every year for an ag program/scholarship(just a few thousand nothing big)....they were so stunned that they never ever got back to us...which was odd we thought.

    until someone else (w/in the school)explained that in a place that is so accustomed to having people demand things from it,giving a gift to them was completely foreign to them so we could not do it while he was alive. But we did try.
