This scholarship was created in memory of Mickey Craig & Debbie Simpson. The first donation to our scholarship fund was given from Susan Bragg in their memory. We are awarding this scholarship to honor Mickey and Debbie, their life and dedication to the veteran community. 

Selection is based on academic promise, financial need and merit. Funding for this scholarship is provided by donations to Alpha Gamma Xi Sorority, Inc. (AGXi)
