"My grandparents believed in helping people. My uncle believed in helping people. They saw the dignity of all human life. I want to know what your thoughts about this are. I want to know what you think," Ms. Simmons said.
The deadline for applications is Jan. 29, 2016.
"The Rev. Simmons dedicated his life to God and helping people to a better way to live," Ms. Simmons said. The Rev. also owned a grocery store.
"Granddad Simmons fed people in their soul and their body," Ms. Simmons said. "He was such an inspiration to me."
"The idea of helping other people is a thread that links everyone whom the scholarship honors", she said.
Mr. Taylor died from kidney failure. Michael Simmons died of leukemia two days after Thanksgiving 2015. Mrs. Taylor owned a hair salon in Grand Rapids, MI, for 50+ years, despite not graduating from high school. In later years, she did earn a GED. She died of a rare health condition.
"This is why an interest in medicine is a scholarship requirement. I hope that some student who receives this money will develop a breakthrough treatment and save lives," Ms. Simmons said. "The business is because of my grandparents' businesses. The law part of the scholarship is because I am a lawyer."
