The George and Fay Young Foundation has awarded Schreiner University students Brooke Tuck, a sophomore psychology major from Willis; and Shayla George, a sophomore psychology and pre-law double major from Springtown, with Young scholarships.

Tuck, who hopes to become an FBI special agent, said her undergraduate career at Schreiner will give her the knowledge and facts she will need for graduate school and her future career.  

“With a strong base in psychology and a good minor in the sciences, lab work will be easy and my psychology will help with profiling,” Tuck said. “With these experiences and this coursework plan, I will be better prepared for the challenges ahead.”

George, who aspires to be a child advocate, hopes to attend law school and knows her undergraduate degree at Schreiner University can better prepare her for that step.

“As an undergraduate, I would really like to work on a research project that focuses on how child abuse harms learning abilities and self-worth,” George said. “I wish to, at some point, volunteer with CASA or another program that helps children out of bad situations.”

The George and Fay Young Foundation is a charitable trust begun in 1985. The Youngs were Dallas residents for much of their lives and began the trust to give back to their community. The foundation focuses on education, individual, family and community intervention, animal rescue and awareness, and healthcare.
