Rewarding strong character and integrity in youth. Deep Cypress Scholarships was originally established to honor a young man who left behind a legacy of great character. Travis Chaffin lived his life honoring God which was reflected in all that he did. He was a leader, an exceptional student, and a great athlete, but, with all of these attributes, still, he remained humble. His inspiration was the spark to ignite a scholarship to reward youth with similar characteristics. Students who exhibit a heart for philanthropy and community.
From 2014 to 2017… The Travis Chaffin Memorial Scholarship distributed over $100,000 in money to deserving young adults. Travis Chaffin’s legacy continues in 2018 and will mark the beginning of the Deep Cypress Scholarship which will continue to reward youth who care about neighbors and community, individuals with integrity, who aspire to leave this world a better place.
