Tatyana Keen, Abby Drexler and Areana Goodrum, members of the T.C. Williams Leadership class volunteered to solicit funds Friday evening, Jan. 11, to support scholarships for the children and siblings of those who died in the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. last month. Students from the University of Connecticut created the Sandy Hook Memorial Scholarship Fund to help with higher education expenses for any of the siblings of the children lost and to the children of the staff members who were murdered. To help the university meet their goal, the T.C. Williams Leadership class partnered with The Motley Fool which paid for the cost of spirit towels “Titans Care, Supporting the families of Sandy Hook community.” Towels were sold at last Friday’s basketball games and city wrestling tournament at the school. The TC students are hoping to raise $5,000-$10,000.
