At the company’s annual Christmas party, December 4th, Market Fresh Produce’s Chairman and CEO Steve Phipps announced to his team the initiation of the Tyler Phipps Memorial Scholarship Fund (TPMSF) in honor of his son Tyler, who passed away September 26, 2015. A scholarship will be awarded annually to a high school senior going into a field of study with the intention of entering the produce industry. The first scholarship will be awarded for the 2016-17 academic year. Details and criteria to qualify for this scholarship can be found on Market Fresh’s website www.marketfreshproduce.net.
Steve Phipps stated that throughout his high school and collegiate career, Tyler received numerous accolades for not only his personal dedication to academics and the sport teams he played on, but also his genuine concern with helping his teammates become better as well. That same genuine support bled into his career, where Tyler had a positive impact on his teammates at Market Fresh. “Tyler loved all aspects of life and to serve others. He would be humbly honored to know that this memorial is being established in his memory and the fact that he could continue to serve even after he is gone” Phipps continued.
