About The Witness To A Dream Foundation:
WTAD Foundation enables inner city at risk public school children to meet individuals who are willing to take the time and put forward the effort to inspire them to greatness through mentoring. Mentors are provided with the WTAD Mentoring System™ – enabling them to be part of the community solution that will encourage students to live and succeed in a life beyond the inner city. The children are given all the reasons and tools they will ever need to stay in school, avoid pregnancy, discover their biggest dreams, identify a career path, and graduate from high school. http://www.witnesstoadream.org
About the Terry Brand Book Scholarship:
Terry Brand was a great mentor to many and a board member for Witness To A Dream. A kind and generous man, Terry enjoyed teaching and caring for others. Terry passed away on March 17th, 2010, and his memory lives on with this scholarship. For most students, paying for schoolbooks can be very costly and sometimes impossible. The Terry Brand Scholarship provides the recipient with every book they need throughout their college education.
