2015-16 Total:


Thank You Schoolmates!




Our 2016 Goal! --   $1,000 for 10 or 11 or . . .

The TPAA directors voted December 5th: With its annual scholarship drive, TPAA, with support and cooperation of TAC members, strives to raise money to award at least $1000 to as many graduating seniors as possible.    

As many of you know, for the last two years TAC donors raised $10,000, and each year we awarded 10 scholarships of $1,000.  Maybe we can award 11 this year!  Maybe more?

You can help make it happen!
