Anthony McPherson, left this planet at the age of 26 to go on a heavenly adventure on 7/9/2017. His body gave up his spirit immediately in a car accident because of an intoxicated driver. His goals and dreams were cut short but will pick up in the new life to be.

 Anthony had a passion for cars, technology, and media. He attended car meets and built sound systems for car installation. He was a devoted son, brother and friend until his life came to an abrupt halt.  He was always working on vehicles, whether pulling the engines apart or running diagnostics. His ultimate goal was to open his own car business. He was a devout born again Christian and we are so blessed with the time we had with him. He is now with his Lord and we can't wait to see him again. 

 Unfortunately, 28 people in the US alone die every day in drunk-driving crashes, resulting in more than 10,000 deaths per year and continue to escalate.

This scholarship seeks to honor the life of Anthony McPherson by raising awareness about drunk driving and supporting students pursuing careers in the automotive industry.

Any high school or undergraduate student who’s pursuing the automotive industry may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, express your creativity through the use of various media such as videos, art, which depicts dui OR write an essay regarding the effects of DUIs and strategies that can be used to prevent them; as well as the correlation of the affects to those that are left behind.
