Our good friend Shawn Smith tragically lost his brother Scott in 2006 when he was killed in the line of Duty in Iraq. In his honor, the Smith family started the Sergeant First Class Scott F Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund to help local students pursue their goals and make a difference in the world. Each year they host a motorcycle ride to raise money for the scholarship fund and remember Scott’s legacy. We documented the process as Shawn and local artist Dan Minksey broke down an old motorcycle to use the sludge, oil, rust and parts to create a portrait of Scott. 

If you would like to donate, join the ride or even raise awareness of the SFC Scott Smith memorial Scholarship Fund please follow the link below.
