For many years Wilma Courtney and Colleen Willis pieced together beautiful quilts in honor of veterans. They tirelessly displayed these quilts and gave them away as drawings. Over $30,000 was raised for students at Dixie. We are proud of their efforts and all those who participated in this worthy cause.

If you would like to support Military families in their educational endeavors, a letter is attached with instructions on how to make a donation. You can always contact the Dixie Scholarship office directly to contribute to the Embracing Our Heroes Scholarship or apply for the Scholarship.
