The Cameron Tyler Prince Legacy Foundation, Inc. was launched on Cameron Prince's birthday, January 3, 2023.

The foundation aims to support and share heart disease awareness, provide educational support, donate to charitable causes, and serve the community with acts of kindness. As part of the foundation’s mission, they aim to provide annual educational support to graduating Seniors of Hillcrest High School.

"16 years of life, Cameron Tyler Prince exemplified the true meaning of a leader, servant, supporter, Hillcrest High School #1 fan, a trustworthy friend, and loving son, said Tammy Prince, Cameron's Mother.

"Because we understand how expensive college can be, we wanted to provide graduating seniors with an opportunity to apply for a scholarship that would provide parents with some financial support for tuition, books, school supplies, and meal plans."

The Love, Light, and Legacy Scholarship will be awarded to three graduating seniors at Hillcrest High School.

Seniors were given an opportunity to apply but must have met the following criteria:

1.    3.0 + GPA

2.    3 community service projects between August 2022-March 2023

3.    Active member of 3 extracurricular activities affiliated with HHS

4.    Essay of 1000 words expressing a degree of interest, provide your leadership experience as a high school student, what obstacles you have faced as a Senior and how did you overcome them, and share a moment of Light and Love that you demonstrated to support others.

This Friday at 9 a.m., the three graduating seniors will be awarded a $1000 scholarship to be used for college expenses.
