Donita Garza Memoriam TAFE Scholarship

This scholarship was set up by her family, in loving memory of the beloved former TAFE State Program Director, Donita Garza. Mrs. Garza was an inspiration to everyone that she met and will have a lasting impact on the future educators of Texas. Education and preparing the next generation of teachers was a passion that drove her life.

TAFE was near and dear to her heart and year after year she strived to gain more scholarships for students. This one time memoriam scholarship will be given to a TAFE student that will pursue education in college and will be presented at the Teach Tomorrow Summit in March.
