Fallen Hero Legacy


Hero Appreciation Network Scholarship Program Award

PROBLEM: Youth Gangs, violence and despair

SOLUTION: Hope and Opportunity/Outreach to the Whole Person

HOW: Thru Higher Education and Vocational Training

WHO: The Hero Appreciation Network & Partner Associates

WHAT: $5,000 Scholarships for college or trade schools

At-Risk Youth in our communities all too often believe nobody cares and see nothing optimistic or hopeful about their futures. They need to know there is a way out of the dark despair that gangs and street crime provide. The Hero Appreciation Network in association with the Los Angeles Clergy Councils, Partners and Law Enforcement offers a clear direction toward the American Dream everyone desires.

A four part partnership program has been developed to supply the tools necessary for our youth to prosper and grow and be directed to a path leading to a bright, hope-filled future.

  1. Family. This program is designed to bring the entire family together to create better understanding and moral support for the young person.

  2. Learning. It’s not unusual for a young person to have trouble in school. Failure often leads to dropout which all too often leads to the streets. This program is designed to teach the student “how to learn.” Once mastered, the student approaches his/her education with the tools necessary to succeed.

  3. Health/Fitness. This is a sports and health program intended for the purpose of developing a strong, healthy body.

  4. Scholarships. The reward for succeeding in all the above areas is the opportunity to be awarded a $5,000 Scholarship to a college or trade school of the student’s choice offered by The Hero Appreciation Network.

Hero Appreciation Network Award Ceremony

This dynamic program, co-administered by our Partner Organizations, Los Angeles Clergy Councils, Sheriff’s and Police Departments and supported by the Hero Appreciation Network is the solution to gang violence and street crime because it provides an alternative to that destructive way of life.

By bringing together the family to create a support system with integrity and moral values, teaching the student “how to learn”, developing his/her health and fitness and finally, offering the student the opportunity to receive a $5,000 Scholarship is the most positive and productive system we could devise to create real change in our society. Our multi-staged program is designed to “reach the whole person” and family.

This Program is truly a legacy of the memory of our Fallen Heroes. To honor the servicemen and women, law officers and firefighters who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, safety and security, every scholarship will be awarded in the name of one of those heroes.

There is no shortage of heroes as there is no shortage of the number of young people in need of a hand up in life.

We believe the students accepting these scholarships become living memorials to the memory of the hero they represent. And so we ask each of them to take this pledge.

I pledge to strive to be the best citizen I can be,

to make the most of the opportunity afforded me,

to honor the memory of a hero and to make proud

the family of the loved one I have been chosen

to represent. This I pledge on my honor.
