Phoenix Milner was a FEAST Volleyball and Basketball player who tragically lost her life in a car accident on May 23rd, 2020. She was an incredibly special person who impacted the lives of all those she came in contact with, not only through sports but within her daily dealings with neighbors, friends, doctors, and especially with the dental professionals at 7 to 7 Dental & Orthodontics. Her teammates and coaches remember her as a vocal leader, a tireless worker, a stranger to none, and a friend to all. She set a classic example of what it means to be a Patriot!

In her honor, Family Educators Alliance of South Texas (FEAST) is honored to award the $1000 Phoenix Milner Memorial Scholarship funded by friends of Phoenix at the 7 to 7 Dental & Orthodontics Group. This will be open for applications beginning in January each year and closed in March of that same year.

Phoenix’s outstanding character and positive leadership qualities will become the basis of the scholarship requirements.
