The Brian Moore Memorial Fund was set up to honor the memory of Brian Moore of the 105th precinct in Queens NY, who tragically lost his life in the line of duty in May 2015. Brian was a graduate of Plainedge High School, who grew up, played, lived, and was a well-respected member of the Plainedge Community.
Members of the Brian Moore Memorial Fund Inc. issued its first round of scholarships to students of Moore’s alma mater, Plainedge High School.
Students were selected based on their demonstration of extensive academic credentials as well as extracurricular and volunteer experience. Recipients were acknowledged for a number of key skills that the committee felt make them ambassadors for the Plainedge community.
In addition to maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA and plans to attend a four-year college, students applying for the scholarship were required to obtain the endorsement of their guidance counselor. Applicants were also asked to submit an essay describing how volunteer or community service has shaped who they are today and what community service has taught them, as well describing any challenges or obstacles they may have had to overcome in their lives and how those achievements will help them succeed in college and beyond. Scholarships are paid directly to the school the student will attend.
Brian Moore Memorial Fund Board of Directors reach out to local community members, inviting them to alert worthy graduating students to submit applications for consideration of the scholarship. The goal of the fund is to provide scholarships to qualifying and deserving Plainedge High School graduates, as well as provide financial assistance to Police Officers, Firefighters or Military personnel in need.
