Jose was a member of the Franklin Pierce High School Class of 2011 whose life was cut short by a brain tumor. Being who he was, Jose lived far longer than his doctors predicted. He loved learning and all he ever wanted to do was go to school. He never complained, no matter how sick he was and faced every day with determination and a wonderful sense of humor. This scholarship was initiated by Jesse Bartlett who had Jose in AP World History. One of his last memories of Jose is when he showed up for the AP exam when he could barely walk and made it through the entire test. The scholarship will be awarded to an AP or Pre-AP World History student who exemplifies Jose’s humor, friendliness and determination.
