The Bobby Byars Memorial/Trade Scholarship was established by the Bobby Byars Foundation, Inc. with the purpose of continuing a legacy of vision, hope, and empowerment. Inspired by Bobby Byars, who started his own masonry business and raised his seven children to believe that anything is possible. Bobby believed in second chances and often hired people who needed them and deserved them.
