Ann Tinnon was my colleague and one of my best friends. In 1993, we lost her due to a brain tumor. That year, to honor Ann and her dedication and work with TASFAA, the “TASFAA Presidential Scholarship” was renamed the “Ann Tinnon Memorial Scholarship”. Each year the TASFAA President presents the scholarship to a student at their school. Students are always so grateful for the support. The Ann Tinnon Memorial Scholarship is certainly a worthwhile cause.
Ann was already in the financial aid profession when I first started my career as a Director of Financial Aid. Early years we didn’t have much money in our budgets for travel and we would share rooms so that we could attend conferences and workshops. Just imagineundefinedhow many pairs of shoes could four women possibly have in one room?
Ann was TASFAA President in 1982-83. She was a wonderful presenter, trainer and loved helping students. She was a loyal and supportive member of our profession. Let’s keep her memory alive by donating to the Ann Tinnon Memorial Scholarship.
