We would like to thank all of the students who submitted an application for the 2018 StringsforaCURE Educational Scholarships.


2018 StringsforaCURE Scholarship Winner

2018 Scholarship Recipient

The StringsforaCURE Foundation awarded $6,000 in Educational Scholarships to six different students graduating from local Erie High Schools in 2018. The scholarship application required the students to write an essay about how a breast cancer diagnosis of a family member impacted their lives. The words of Tara Twargoski describing her feelings about her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis were particularly touching and she was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.  Tara (L), who was unable to attend our Scholarship Award presentation at Blasco Library is pictured here with her mother, Barb, who works at St. Vincent Women’s Center and is involved with the Breast Cancer program there. Tara’s experience throughout her mother’s breast cancer journey has motivated her to pursue a degree in nursing at the Nova Southeastern University in Florida.
