Jonathan Cote Memorial Scholarship

Jonathan Cote was an army veteran and brother of Sigma Phi Epsilon.
He chose to return to Iraq in 2006. A month prior to his return he was
kidnapped, held for 522 days, and killed.

His Sigma Phi Epsilon brothers have been working on raising $15,000
in order to create a memorial scholarship in his name which will be
available to eligible Gainesville veterans. This scholarship will
eventually award $1,500 a year in Jonathan's name. The brothers
have collected over half the amount needed and are pushing to finish
this effort by Christmas.

If you would like more information, please contact Sigma Phi Epsilon
brother Brock Hankins at brockhankinsaamail.com (386) 871-7183, or
