The Team Tori Foundation Scholarship was set up in honor of 2006 OTHS Graduate Victoria (Tori) Anne Riley. The foundations mission is to help colon cancer fighters, educate our youth about colon cancer, and give a scholarship annually.
Tori was a loving daughter, sister, Granddaughter, family member, friend and incredible person. She was just 24 years old when diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. She showed incredible courage and in turn was shown an enormous amount of compassion by the community.
She was a warrior who impacted a lot of people the 26 years she lived. Tori Loved high school and her peers. The Foundation had to find a way to give back by honoring Tori so that her legacy will live on. You can read more about her and make a donation on the donation tab.
