As you know, we are extremely proud to continue honoring the memory of our two Vietnam War heroes James Prommersberger and Charles Brown who were awarded the Silver Star for bravery post-humously. A scholarship fund has been established to be awarded yearly to one deserving Fitch graduate.
We are seeking donations for this fund to continue the Prommersberger/Brown legacy and to assist the winning student with some of the expenses a college education can bring. We hope to award a scholarship to one deserving student each year.
A contribution of just $5, or $10 would go a long way to help in replenishing the fund, may be tax deductable.and you can contribute as often as you like.
Please make your check payable to Austintown Local Schools and send it to:
Austintown Schools, 700 S. Racoon Rd, Youngstown, Ohio 44515.
Att. Ms. Barbara Kliner
