Michael Tilmon was my best friend and teammate when I attended MacArthur High School in Irving, TX. Sadly, he passed away in a car accident in March of 1997. This scholarship program is intended to honor him and all he stood for by assisting those who demonstrate the type of character and integrity that Michael possessed.
To be eligible for the scholarship you must meet the following criteria; currently be attending MacArthur High School in Irving, TX, have overcome some hardship or adversity, have maintained or improved your academic standing between your junior and senior year, and must have participated in either a varsity sport or extracurricular activity during your senior year.
At least $10,000 is awarded each year, divided amongst that year’s recipients in varying amounts. It is a one year award, it does not renew.
