She received a few scholarships in addition to financial aid along the way, which helped tremendously. The generosity of others gave Trisha the springboard needed to gain a degree and be successful in business. It’s the generosity and support received along the way that gives this scholarship reason and the name -Bearkat Paw it Forward Scholarship.
