17th Annual Trista Tyler Memorial Scholarship Sponsor Opportunity Ends March 15th

Trista LeAnne Tyler who passed away on June 20, 2003, at the age of 17 in an automobile accident was the 3 pt. shooter for the Atlanta High School’s girls’ basketball team. Her shots were known for never using the backboard – hitting “nothing but net.”  Trista also loved The Wizard of Oz, so this year’s Trista Tyler Memorial Scholarship T-shirt is incorporating both. The shirt will feature a yellow brick road circle on a light blue shirt. Inside the circle will be a silhouette of a girl taking a basketball shot wearing red sneakers and a red glittery #14.

All proceeds from sponsors and shirt sales will go to the Trista Tyler Scholarship fund that awards a $500 scholarship to deserving graduates at each of the four Winn Parish Schools. To date the Trista Tyler Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded $101,500 to 203 high school seniors.

To make a contribution and be recognized as a sponsor on this year’s t-shirt you can make checks payable to the Trista Tyler Memorial Scholarship Fund, (Federal Tax ID #72-0124970) c/o Karen Tyler, 264 Mars Hill Church Rd, Atlanta, La. 71404. For more information, call Karen at (318) 715-1442 or 628-9739.  Deadline to be recognized on the shirt is March 15, 2020. All sponsors receive a complimentary shirt.
