In 2021, Kerry Anne and Paul made the decision to endow a scholarship at Pensacola State College in Ella’s name. The Ellanor Rosemary Battle Endowed Scholarship was established to honor the kindness and generosity that they see in their young daughter. It is awarded to students in law-related studies and has important preferences for female students who volunteer. With a joyful and kind spirit, Ella will be ranking the scholarship candidates with her parents.
