About Gary Tinsley Memorial Scholarship Fund
Students Impacting Communities, the University of Minnesota BME Program, the Department of OLPD, College of Education & Human Development, University of Minnesota Football Program and many other generous companies and individuals across Minnesota have created a unique auction to raise funds for a Gary Tinsley Memorial Scholarship Fund. As most of you know Gary Tinsley passed away on April 6th, 2012 from an enlarged heart. Gary's family was awarded his BS Degree in Business Marketing Education posthumously at the CEHD graduation commencement on May 10, 2012. Besides being an outstanding football player, Gary was known for his work ethic, leadership & his infectious smile. He was a true "Student Athlete". From August 29 through September 18, we will be conducting an online auction with 100% of the proceeds going to the Gary Tinsley Memorial Scholarship Fund. Funds will be used to endow a perpetual scholarship which will be used for undergraduate BME students at the University of Minnesota. We thank you in advance for your generous support.
