					                               Asai Miller Scholarship Award

Even at the tender age of 3 ½ years old, Asai Jobarae Miller recognized the importance of
education. He wanted nothing more than to LEARN. Asai excitedly told us stories about riding
the bus to school. He even began asking his mother when he would be able to go to school. At
Annie Tammy’s Daycare, he constantly asked for school work to complete. Asai was the model
student. He was accepted into the Preschool Program at Hickory Grove Elementary School for
the Fall of 2009. Unfortunately, Asai was not able to attend as the Lord granted him his angle
wings in May of 2009. The family of Asai Miller would like to continue Asai’s legacy by honoring
a student who understands the importance of education with the Asai Miller Scholarship.
