THE UNION (GRASS VALLEY) -- The Daniel Brooks Memorial Scholarship was created last year after Nevada County lost the much loved local personality and artist. Parents, Families, Friends and Allies United with LGBTQ People (PFLAG) members say the scholarship honors Brooks’ “many artistic talents and contributions to the community by remembering Daniel’s shining spirit in this way. He was always happy to help PFLAG and often rode in the Constitution Day Parade among PFLAG's members.”
