Scholarship Spotlight - Kyle Murray Memorial
Kyle Murray was a 3rd grader at Anderson Elementary in Allen ISD who loved going to school, loved art and animals, and was beloved by his family, friends, teachers and community. In 2014 Kyle passed away after a very brave battle with cancer. The Murray family worked with the Foundation For Allen Schools, The Howard Hughes Corporation, and The Ruth Cheatham Foundation to award memorial donations as scholarships to Allen High School seniors, beginning with the Class of 2015.
The Howard Hughes Corporation is a leading real estate developer that owns, manages and develops commercial, residential and mixed-use real estate throughout the country.
The Ruth Cheatham Foundation is a non-profit that works to support cancer patients and their families through education and financial aid. For more information about the Ruth Cheatham Foundation, go to www.ruthcheathamfoundation.org
