About the Scholarship the Fund

about-tyler2

When Tyler was killed, establishing a scholarship fund in his name helped us to turn our tragedy into a way to both honor his memory and to continue his legacy of helping people. Raising money to build and maintain that fund will always be essential.

 

Since the fund was established in 2012, we have helped pay the tuition for six Archbishop Stepinac High School student-athletes, and continue to support them, until they have graduated. Each year, we accept an additional candidate from the incoming freshman class. As of the beginning of this school year (2019-2020), we are assisting one student in all four grades. Our first three scholarship recipients have graduated and have gone on to college.  Attending Stepinac was a very positive experience for Tyler and his two brothers. We want to help other young men, who might not otherwise be able to afford to have that same experience, by providing them with some financial assistance.

Since 2016, the scholarship fund annually donates a year’s tuition to Our Lady of Mount Carmel School in Elmsford, the grammar school that Tyler and his siblings attended.

Since 2017, the fund annually donates a year’s tuition to Elmsford Summer Day Camp, the camp where Tyler and his siblings attended and later worked as counselors.
The fund has also helped to purchase an automated external defibrillator (AED) for East Rumbrook Park in Greenburgh. An AED can restore the heart’s normal rhythm while waiting for medical assistance to arrive.

With the help of all of the sponsors, participants, spectators and volunteers, last year’s car show raised over $12,000 for the scholarship fund.
