The inaugural Alex Matthew Pettman Memorial Scholarship is available this year for four individuals who have struggled with mental illness and have a goal of starting or continuing their education.
The Scholarship is funded and was established by Mark and Nancy Pettman of Red Wing, and administered by Mixed Roots Foundation in partnership with NAMI Minnesota and will honor and serve as a tribute to their much loved son, brother, and uncle, Alex Matthew Pettman.
The four applicants who are selected will be recognized and awarded $500 each as a scholarship to further their education.
