Danyaus Williams-Byrd Tuition Fund

$15,000 goal

Campaign created 9 months ago
Danyaus has been given the opportunity to continue his education and football career at Maryville College.  He is currently getting a large portion of his tuition through scholarships, grants and financial aid.  However, additional funding is needed.

It has been amazing for us to watch the growth and maturity of Danyaus over the past 5 years. Danyaus has overcome more adversity than most people will ever face. He is the first in his family to go to college.  He has not taken this opportunity for granted. He is excelling academically, and has continued to work hard on the football field. Danyaus has surrounded himself with a solid core group at Maryville, and is growing spiritually as well. He is involved in FCA, as well as a local church. 

Our goal with this campaign is to allow Danyaus to continue to build on the progress he has made at Maryville, and to continue his dream. Halfway through the semester we were made aware of a situation in some student loan funding that will leave Danyaus with an unpaid portion of tuition totalling nearly $6000  for the semester, and   $12,000 for the year.  While this was a discouraging and overwhelming piece of news for Danyaus, we all remain hopeful that we can help him find a way to stay at Maryville for at least the semester, and hopefully the whole year. 

We are constantly amazed at what God has done in Danyaus' life, and are faithful that He will make a way for him in this situation as well.

Thank you all for taking the time to read and share this story.
