It is with great pride that we announce the college graduation of Audrey Gill, a Coast Guard Foundation Fallen Heroes Scholarship recipient. Audrey graduated from the University of Georgia two weeks ago, a full semester early!
“Audrey, we are so proud of you and your accomplishments. We wish you the best of luck in your future work and know that you’ll do well,” said Anne Brengle, Coast Guard Foundation President.
In 2010, Audrey was awarded a $20,000 scholarship. Ms. Gill is the daughter of AM1 Michael Gill, was killed while flying a rescue mission in California. She was just three years old.
At the time of the award announcement, Audrey said, "It's a really big honor that my dad served in the Coast Guard. He's my hero."
