100 Black Parents establishes the Tyrone Love Scholarship for Community Service & Engagement.
Seattle, WA – “I love this” was the refrain from many who knew Tyrone Love when the word spread online that there would be a scholarship in his name. The $1,000 scholarship will be awarded this week to an African American Senior at Garfield High School. Love, known to many in the community from his employment at the Meredith Matthews YMCA, The Community Day School Association, or his many events with Vibrant 206 Entertainment, was found murdered in the 26th block of Cherry Street (Seattle, Central District) in 2009. “The case remains unsolved, but his legacy will march forward”, said Sahara Anthony, Board Member at Service is a Lifestyle (SIAL), the non-profit fiscal sponsor of 100 Black Parents. “Tyrone was an asset to our community and was taken too soon. He would be proud that his name is associated with someone being able to attend college.”
Students applying for the Tyrone Love Scholarship will need to have a minimum GPA of 2.5 and have demonstrated a level of community service and engagement during their high school career. Funds will be awarded upon enrollment in college. This scholarship is one of several that 100 Black Parents will be establishing for Garfield High School students and there will be others that will be open to students from any Western Washington high school.
