Sixteen burn survivors are furthering their education in 2015-16 with the financial assistance of a Phoenix Education Grant (PEG). The scholarship program was establish 14 years ago when Barbara Kammerer Quayle, a school teacher at the time of her burn injury, had a vision to give survivors the confidence and hope that further education would bring. That year she provided the initial funding for the first national survivor scholarship. Since then, countless donations, including a major commitment by AlloSource, have funded recipients. In 2013, the company, one of the nation's largest nonprofit providers of skin, bone, and soft tissue allografts, pledged a $250,000 donation, which will be made over 10 years, to the PEG program, enabling many more burn survivors to achieve their educational dreams.
