Issa Scholarship

Lila Streeter was a loving mother of three murdered on the 2nd of October after years of battling domestic violence in silence. Lila’s admiration for children and education drove her through all her endeavors and personal challenges. She was taken too soon at the age of 26. It is our hope that this scholarship will continue to expand Lila’s legacy of compassion and unwavering determination by supporting efforts that seek to expand, educate, and uplift local Black youth.
