2018 Scholarship Recipient

Trinity High School senior Jayla Tillis has been chosen as the recipient of The Monty Price Foundation 2018 scholarship award. Jayla’s application blew us away, and we are so excited for her future. She is a great athlete, student, and volunteer in her community. She will be attending college in the fall at Tyler. But the incredible icing on the cake is that her uncle, Arthur Tillis, was my brother Monty’s teammate. I know he is smiling from heaven.

Thank you to all of the wonderful students who applied for this year’s scholarship. We are honored that you participated and shared your stories with us. We wish all good things for you as you pursue your dreams. We were impressed by each and every one of you! As Monty would say, “Champions work hard when no one is looking.” You are all champions in our book!
