The Tara L. Stevens Memorial Scholarship

Our founder's sister, Tara L. Stevens, 25 years old and beloved mother of 2 beautiful children, was murdered by her husband in September 2003. Upon her death, Tara was working towards her Nursing Degree. She had hoped to earn a better job in order to provide more for her children. Instead, her life was cut short by an abusive husband.

Tara was a caring mother full of love and affection. Unfortunately, she made a bad choice that serves as a lesson to us all. Abuse does not stop. No matter the circumstances, you must love yourself first. You must leave the abuser, realize your self worth, and start life again. There are many organizations that will help. Always remember that you deserve the best, because you are worth it.

This memorial to Tara brings hope to less fortunate students wishing to pursue an education. Your generosity has been the key element, and our students have benefited tremendously.

Thank you so much and God bless you as you help to keep this tradition and her memory alive.
