The Becky Walker Scholarship Foundation was founded in 2019 in memory of Becky Walker who passed from pancreatic cancer in February of 2019. We are a non-profit 501C3* organization providing scholarships to graduating seniors at Spoto High School, a Title 1 school in Tampa, FL where Becky was the science department head
The foundation has raised $229,000 since inception
Each year, we distribute 2x scholarships of $10,000 over a four year period awarded to two Spoto High School seniors who demonstrate exceptional academic and extra-curricular achievement, community service, and the financial need for tuition assistance
Our goal is to raise enough funding to gradually expand our scope from students at Spoto High School to students at all Title 1 Schools in Hillsborough County. Currently standing at $220K, we hope to get our endowment to $300k by the end of 2022 so that we can invest it to support Spoto High School in perpetuity and move on to raising money for our next Hillsborough County Title 1 school.
