Purpose:
The Phoenix Education Grant (PEG) is the first national scholarship endowment fund created for burn survivor students.  Barbara Kammerer Quayle, a teacher who was burned in an automobile accident in 1977, created the scholarship fund in 2001.  Her initial gift laid the foundation for the PEG scholarship fund.
