SHYOLANDA BROWN FAMILY FOUNDATION
Education. Opportunity. Achievement.
The Shyolanda Brown Family Foundation offers scholarships to Denver metro-area’s most promising, college-bound, African-American student athletes, helping them advance their education, create more opportunity and experience high achievement.
“With an education, you have everything you need to rise above all the noise and fulfill every last one of your dreams.”
- Michelle Obama
This scholarship opportunity has been established in loving memory of the late Shyolanda Brown, who was a dedicated wife, mother, and advocate for education.
As a native of Gary, Indiana, and graduate of Roosevelt High School, Shyolanda went on to attend Indiana State University on an academic scholarship. She graduated in 1991 with a degree in Criminology.
After starting her own family with her husband, Arthur, they made it their mission to position their 4 children for better opportunities and high achievement through education.
They’ve accomplished that, and Shyolanda’s legacy lives on through the Shyolanda Brown Family Foundation Scholarship.
Now, one of Denver metro-area’s most promising African American high school student athletes will be awarded $6,000 over the course of their 4-year college or university career.
