Catch for Christmas Scholarship Program, with support from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation and AdventHealth, is providing Florida Prepaid Four-Year University Plans to Local Students
On Sunday, Dec. 19, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the New Orleans Saints for a primetime NFC South matchup, six local high school students will be presented with college scholarships through the Mike Evans Family Foundation’s Catch for Christmas Scholarship Program. With support from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Foundation Social Justice Fund and AdventHealth, each of the six Catch for Christmas Scholarship recipients will be awarded Florida Prepaid Four-Year University Plans valued at $23,500 each.
During a break in play in the first quarter, Super Bowl Champion and three-time Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award nominee Mike Evans and his wife, Ashli, will announce the scholarship and congratulate the recipients through a special video message played on the Raymond James Stadium BUCVISION boards. The recipients – Gabriel Brewer, Gabriella Feagle, Maria Huezo, Frank Liu, Tammy Nguyen and Taliah Wimbush – high school seniors from the East Tampa community who applied for the scholarship and were selected through the Hillsborough Education Foundation, will attend the game and be recognized in front of the crowd from the stadium’s pirate ship.
