Tyra Marie Hispanic Scholarship Fund
Donate to the Tyra Marie Hispanic Scholarship fund
As a proud Hispanic and first-generation college graduate, Izak aka “Tyra Marie” understands the value and importance education has played in all facets of his life. The power of education has opened many doors for him and because of this Izak has a strong desire to share that experience with his fellow Hispanic community. Over the past several years, enrollment amongst Hispanic students in colleges has increased significantly largely due to the availability of scholarships and financial assistance. In order to help encourage and continue this trend, the Tyra Marie Hispanic Scholarship Fund has been created.
