The K&J scholarship is awarded in memory of Kiara (17) and Jameel (15) Pearse who were tragically killed in an automobile accident on November 14, 2006. Kiara’s dream was to own a child-care center after completing college and Jameel’s dream was to be a music producer. It is our hope that these scholarships will assist you in fulfilling your dreams. This scholarship was made possible by the generous contributions of family, friends and the community at large. Download K&J Scholarship Application.
