The Michael Alan Fuller II Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Alan Fuller who was killed in a single-car accident in 2004 and is one of several scholarship funds managed by Mattoon Area Community Foundation. Alan’s family, Mike and Carol Fuller and Rachelle Fuller, organized the Big Al Golf Classic for 11 years to raise money for the scholarship fund. According to Carol Fuller, “It was very important to our family to find a way to memorialize our son after his death. At the same time, we really enjoy giving the money away through scholarships during our lifetimes. It is even better that it will keep on going after we are gone. We love the legacy we will leave behind in memory of our son.”
