The Sammy Taylor Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by a group of Mr. Taylor’s family members and close friends in 2010 when he passed away unexpectedly. This group unanimously expressed interest in keeping alive his tradition of supporting local FFA/4-H youth of East Montgomery County. This non- profit organization of volunteers, with the continuous support of the community, award scholarships to qualifying FFA/4-H graduating seniors of the New Caney and Splendora School Districts and support the youth of this community at the annual EMC Fair and Rodeo. STMS holds a Sporting Clay Shoot annually to raise funds to support these efforts. As of 2019, STMS has awarded 72 Scholarships totaling $334,500.00 given $87,000 in support to youth participating in the EMCF in the past 10 years total $421,500.00. We are very grateful to our supporters and participants in these events who believe in providing a path for success for our kids through achievements, leadership and education.
