The Juliet Austin Spirit Memorial Scholarship

On Tuesday, April 14th,  New Smyrna Beach High School English teacher Juliet Austin passed away after a long illness. Mrs. Austin was a favorite teacher, loved by students and parents alike. She truly cared about her kids and made every effort to help them succeed.

One of her students, Eliezer Otero has organized a fundraiser in her honor. Money raised will go to the "Juliet Austin Spirit" Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship will be presented to a NSBHS student on Honors Night which is May 28th at the high school.

The fundraiser is being hosted by Pub 44 on Saturday, May 2nd from 11:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. Pub 44 will donate a portion of each check to the scholarship fund. Pub 44 will have flyers available to give to your server. This lets them know you are there for the event. There will be a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction as well.

Memorial T-Shirts are also available for $15.00 each and all proceeds will go to the scholarship fund.

If you are unable to attend and would like to donate contact Heather Otero via email.

If you are a student and would like to apply for the scholarship it is very easy. Simply write a 500 or less word essay about what Mrs. Austin meant to you. Turn it in to the guidance office on or before May 1st.
