The T.J. Dunaway Scholarship is in honor of Timothy Dunaway Jr.  T.j who passed due to a hard battle with leukemia in 2010.  He was full of life, scholarship, and courage.  His infectious and vibrant personality could light up a room. Through his battle he would entertain other patients on his floor at the children's hospital in Washington, DC by playing music on the piano.  As he may have passed at the age of 21 his legacy and impressions shall live forever.


The objective of the TJ Dunaway Scholarship is to assist individuals who desire to further his/her education after high school.  Each scholarship will be valued between $250 - $1000 each and will be awarded in total to each final student graduating from various competing high schools.  Winners will also receive gifts from our partners at Humility Clothing Co.
