sitting "in Ty’s place”
We had completed the Texas Leader magazine cover photo shoot and gathered for a delicious lunch on campus. As we discussed the scholarship, Jeremiah Gunderson, Director of Student Veteran Services, spoke the words that would become our beacon of light, hope and honor: "each recipient is sitting in Ty’s place". Andria got chills and I burst with joy: that was exactly how I felt; that said it all. Sitting 'in Ty’s place’ will always be in quotation marks to honor the man who brought us this beautiful reference and embodiment of Tyrell’s scholarship. A thousand thanks, Jeremiah!
On 11 February 2008, less than 90 days returning from his 3rd tour in Iraq, my son was killed in ahit-and-run in Austin, TX. He died in the street alone. It wasn’t until he was struck a second time, and nearly an hour later, that law enforcement and emergency services were notified. The perpetrator was never identified.
These past 9 years have been a journey of healing whereby the death of my son began a series of losses that were a catalyst in re-defining myself. To use my experiences, skills and expertise for the purpose of helping others.
Nevertheless, my healing requires a closure which can only occur once I establish a way to honor my son the man, and my son the Marine. Creating a need-based endowed scholarship for Veterans attending The University of Texas at Austin is my closure; an expression which transforms this tragedy into grace.
My son gave me a key-chain which bears the message “Once a Marine Mom, Always a Marine Mom”. I carry it with pride and believe it is a representation of my membership in the Marine family.
This endowment expresses who Tyrell was. He supported his family, his friends, and his brothers and sisters in service to our country by graciously giving from his beautiful heart. Establishing this endowment is an expression of my love and my desire to honor my son; attending The University of Texas at Austin was his dream when he returned home.
With honor you have served our country and now you are diligently moving forward with your life. It is my hope this scholarship will fuel your desire to stay the course; to accomplish your dream. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice. It is a privilege to be a part of your journey .
