Make Everybody Feel Like Somebody Scholarship

This scholarship was created by the Brown Family to honor their son, Travis, who passed away while he was a student at the University of Alabama.  Travis had a special gift of being able to reach out to people in an open and inviting way that showed they really mattered to him.

The Make Everybody Feel Like Somebody Scholarship recognizes a graduating senior that exemplifies the qualities of Travis Brown who really "made everybody feel like somebody" by being friendly, nonjudgmental and going out of his way to make everyone feel welcome.  Travis also displayed a passion for service to others by giving back to his school/community and by reaching out to others on a personal level.
