8th C. Faye Tillery Youth Volunteer Scholarship Application
The family of C. Faye Tillery is excited to offer $2,000.00 in scholarships to youth in the community that volunteer on a regular basis. This is a great honor, because Faye was a person who did everything she could to allow the youth to have fun, receive exposure, give back to the community and understand what it meant to be a team player. She was dedicated to making others active even during her battle with cervical cancer. Over 21 years ago, Faye lost her battle with cervical cancer on November 5, 1998. We remember her today by kicking off the 8th Annual C. Faye Tillery Youth Volunteer Scholarship application.
