Tonkon Torp was a bronze sponsor at Marathon Scholars' Winter Gold event on February 26. The Marathon Scholars program identifies students whose socio-economic situation may present them with profound challenges but who have great promise and untapped potential. The program model utilizes a combination of mentoring, college scholarships, and enrichment opportunities to invest in these children early and help remove the obstacles they will face on their journey to a college degree. Claire Brown organized Tonkon's participation at the event. Claire recently joined the Marathon Scholars board of directors.
