Kailee Mills Foundation Accepting Applications for $20,000 College Scholarship

Kailee Mills Foundation will award one $20,000 college scholarship for the 2019-2020 academic year to a student who has lost a parent or sibling in a car crash. Kailee Mills lost her life in 2017 at age 16 when she was in a car accident and wasn’t wearing her seat belt. Her parents created the Kailee Mills Foundation to honor their daughter by raising awareness about the importance of seat belt use and hope that it will inspire others to choose to do something positive with the tragedies in their lives. Applicants must be in the high school graduating class of 2019. KaileeMillsFoundation.org/scholarship
