The mission of Future Legends is to mentor and award scholarships to deserving students in pursuit of higher education. This vision, to be the finest program in the country of its kind, is only possible through the selflessness and dedication of the mentors themselves. They are an integral part of the success of Future Legends and their contribution is priceless.

Jim and Bev Boyce have been the mentor chairs for the past 10 years. They have nurtured the mentorship portion of Future Legends from its humble beginnings into the flourishing program it has today. After thoughtful consideration, they have made the decision to hand the baton to the next generation of volunteers. Founder Vearl Smith shared, “I am extremely appreciative of Jim and Bev’s time and commitment and am equally grateful to Jack and Sheila Giacomini for accepting the newly open position of mentor chairs and making this a seamless transition. We are very excited to experience continued growth under their leadership and care.”
