Our Mission

To award a Senior Student Athlete a scholarship to use at a four year college or University. Jaydon Chavez-Silver was a student athlete with a great passion for life and the sports that he played. His team was his family, in whatever sport he was a part of. Along with his passion for sports he knew he had to balance it out with his studies, which was a difficult task at times. He also took the time to volunteer with the homeless, young children and senior population.  I would like to see these great characteristics be carried on with our youth.
