A plan for success was born out of tragedy. It’s called the Children of the 58 Scholarship Fund. Since 1 October, Mynda Smith and her family have been dealing with the loss of her sister Neysa Tonks. While they’ve been grieving her loss, they made sure that Neysa’s sons and the children of 57 other victims would be taken care of when it comes to their education. In partnership with the Public Education Foundation, the Children of the 58 scholarship awards approximately $6,000 to dependents of those who lost their lives on October 1, 2017.
