What do you think of when you hear the name “Abraham Lincoln”? Is it that he was the 16th President or that he could not tell a lie? What about a Lawyer?
Students from Kilgore High School, in Kilgore, Texas, in Gregg County, are competing to have their essay on “Abraham Lincoln: Lawyer” published on GlennBeck.com and receive a scholarship to support their educational goals from Mercury One.
Scholarship funds (up to $5,000 for the winner) will be raised through sales of this t-shirt during a 30-day period. At the end of the period, 30% of sales will be donated to the “education fund” of Mercury One, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Mercury One will award the winner with a scholarship to be used to further the student’s education.
