Founded by parents Wayson and Renee Murray for Urbana High School graduating seniors pursuing a post-secondary education.
Sixteen-year-old Urbana High School junior, Tyler Dane Murray, was known for his boundless energy, his kindness and generosity, and his ability to make others laugh. His bright blue eyes and infectious smile had an immediate impact on everyone who knew him. A fullback on the Urbana High School Football Team, number 33, he was a well-respected and much-loved young man. Sadly, Tyler’s bright future was tragically cut short when he died in a car accident in March 2007. To honor Tyler’s memory, his parents created the Tyler Dane Murray Scholarship Fund to award scholarships to graduating seniors of Urbana High School pursuing a post-secondary education.
