“Over the years and learning more about the story beneath the student surface we see everyday, I learned her fortitude, determination and outgoing nature sets her apart from her peers.”

Mayor went on to say, “Throughout the years, I have watched her grow and develop both academically and personally into a mature, dedicated and hard-working individual eager and ready for her endeavor onto and through her collegiate years. Tamia is an amazingly resilient young lady with life experiences, which speaks volumes of her ability to overcome adversity and undeniably strong mental and emotional inner-strength to rise above difficulties that would make many falter.”
