Trayvon Martin Foundation helps youth attend college 

Miami Times staff report | 9/26/2013, 9 a.m.

The Trayvon Martin Foundation recently gave back to youth — with Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin both presenting scholarships to four graduating seniors at Dr. Michael Krop Senior High School — the school that their son Trayvon Martin once attended. The total amount of the scholarships was $50,000. 

The purpose of this scholarship is to provide educational opportunities for disadvantaged students in memory of Trayvon. The aim is to help ensure that his legacy will live on within the hearts and minds of all young people. The Foundation believes that youth can be true catalysts for change when they are provided with equal educational opportunities. 

Among those community organizations and businesses that donated funds were: Boyland Auto Group, LLC; Invictus Law Group, P.L.; Boyz-4-Lyfe; and Delta Xi Lambda. All of the contributing organizations say they are led by Black men who have a strong commitment to serve and uplifting youth.
