“Charlie was always an advocate for higher education,” says Mrs. Milan. “He encouraged all young people to prepare themselves for the opportunity of a better life. He was never too busy to listen and to help in any way he could.”

The scholarship, which will provide $1,000 annually to its recipient, will be awarded to an incoming freshman who attended a school in the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System.

The recipient, who will be chosen by a School of Education committee, must be an education major with a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 and unmet financial need.

APSU students may receive the scholarship for up to four years, if they continue to pursue a degree in education and maintain full-time status, as well as a minimum GPA of 3.0.

The first award will be made in Spring 2005 to a second-semester freshman.
