The Taj Renee Brown Memorial Fund and AMST Scholarship
by contacting AMST Board Treasurer.
One of Taj's greatest passions in life was swimming. Her love for swimming started at an early age when she lived in the Philippines and Hawaii. Taj loved being a part of organized swim teams and loved being involved with the Barracuda team.
In the words of her husband, David Brown, "During Taj's illness, our family was blessed in so many ways by the Cuda' Team."
The AMST Taj Renee Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund honors the memory of Barracuda's mom, Taj Renee Brown, who passed away in October of 2008.
