Alumni Giving Back – The Trey Lance Scholarship
As spring approaches, Pride in the Tiger Foundation is pulling together the scholarship details for the Marshall High School graduating class of 2022. It is an exciting time for seniors as they finish up the year and finalize their plans. The Foundation expects to award over $183,000 in scholarships on May 18, 2022, at an awards ceremony to be held at Marshall High School. This year, one of several new scholarships come from a now famous alumnus the whole community is proud of, Trey Lance.
Sleep Number, the official Sleep and Wellness partner of the NFL, is donating $5,000 in Trey’s name. Trey is matching their donation to develop an endowed scholarship that will be awarded to a deserving Marshall High School graduate every year.
“I’m very thankful for everything they (Sleep Number) have done for me and my family, they are a purposeful organization…they donated $5,000 to help me start a scholarship, to go towards an annual scholarship back at my high school in Marshall, MN. “ – Trey Lance
“The Foundation is grateful for the generosity of Sleep Number and Trey Lance. Our goal is to provide opportunities for the students at Marshall’s schools and support students that want to expand their learning beyond high school. Trey’s donation is a great example of giving back. The Foundation and the community of Marshall are proud of Trey’s success and look forward to giving this scholarship to a deserving graduate that exhibits the character and work ethic Trey has grown from!” – Krista Bjella, Executive Director, Pride in the Tiger Foundation.
