GLENDALE -- Karen Gallagher is one of several Tillman Scholars who plan to attend Pat Tillman Military Appreciation Night at Gila River Arena on March 31 when the Coyotes take on the NHL-leading Washington Capitals.
"I'm so excited," said Gallagher, who was named a Tillman Scholar in May of 2016. "It's an opportunity for me to sit in the company of military members and other Tillman scholars, and I'm also excited to be there as the Coyotes recognize the military, and Pat Tillman, and the Tillman Scholar program. I'm thrilled they will educate the hockey community, and those not familiar with Pat's Run, about the Tillman Scholar program and what it represents. I can't wait to be a part of it."
Founded in 2004, the Pat Tillman Foundation invests in military veterans and their spouses through academic scholarships - building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others. The scholars chosen show extraordinary academic and leadership potential, a true sense of vocation, and a deep commitment to create positive change through their work in the fields of medicine, law, business, education and the arts.
