Growing up in Bloomsburg, hearing the stories of what BU was like from when my mom and dad attended, then seeing my sister also go on to become a Husky, coming to BU was pretty much a foregone conclusion for Tyler. Thanks to his parents and sister coming here before him, he knew how to take all the proper steps to apply for scholarships, so he made sure to do that. But he never actually dreamed he'd receive one.

"When I learned I was chosen for the Hank and Linda Bailey Mathematics Scholarship and the J. Edward Kerlin Scholarship I had to do a double take," says Tyler. "I couldn’t believe someone out there would believe in me so much to invest in my future like that. I couldn’t be more grateful."

Now he is working hard to show his donors they made the right choice. Watch the video below to learn more about Tyler's BU Journey.
