Edward Seese Memorial Scholarship

When millionaire real estate investor Edward Seese died in March 1995, he left instructions in his will to fund a $4.5 million scholarship at Broward Community College. The recipients of the scholarship, he instructed, were to be high school students who earned a C average. He felt that scholarships typically went to high academic achievers, so the C students had been "left out in the cold."

The scholarship still seems to be available to those who qualify.

Wonder if he has a fondness for C students (the C's), because of his last name?

Do you need a C average or no A's or B's on your report card?

I like the way you connected Mr. Seese's name with the "C" average student, RobK. I guess you had to say the name aloud to hear the similarity.
