Over the 4th of July, Atlas Sales, Inc. presented a $5,000 Folds of Honor educational scholarship to one of Battle Creek’s very own hometown residents. Atlas Sales has been deeply rooted in the community since 1933, so we really enjoyed giving back directly to a deserving member of our local community.
Our Folds of Honor partnership
Folds of Honor Foundation provides educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation. Of the more than 1 million dependents of military service men and women, almost 90% do not qualify for educational assistance form the US Department of Veteran Affairs and other governmental programs. Folds of Honor and Atlas Sales recognize our government’s efforts to support military service families, but we also realize that government cannot succeed alone. This year, with a partnership of Anheuser-Busch, Atlas Sales, other companies in the A-B wholesaler family, retailers, and Budweiser drinkers across America, our combined efforts will raise in excess of $3 million for Folds of Honor.
Is it is with great pride that we announce our first Folds of Honor scholarship recipient is Suzannah Avery. The Atlas Sales team and I are honored to recognize US Marine Nicholas Avery’s service to our country and award Suzannah this $5,000 scholarship for her immediate education endeavors at Central Michigan University. Congratulations! We know that you will put this scholarship to good use in your pursuit of higher education.
Our coalition plans to continue this partnership for years to come. If you know a spouse or child of a service member of any branch, active duty or reserves who has a service-connected disability, wounded in action, or made the ultimate sacrifice serving this great nation, please encourage them to visit the FoldsofHonor.org website and apply for one of these scholarships.
I would also like to thank Colonel Ron Wilson Wing Commander of the 110th Airlift Wing for providing our team an awesome opportunity to present Suzannah with her scholarship on base with 60 Atlas team members, friends, and family. Without the 110th Airlift Wing, Michigan National Guard and all the base staff’s efforts, we would not have had such an amazing scholarship presentation.
