Joe fully recognized that he would most likely not have suffered as he did on the streets if he would have been given the opportunity to have an education. That’s why a scholarship has been set up in his name.
We have a limited amount of time to raise $50,000 to fully endow the Joe Lightfoot Gonzales Memorial Fund through Baylor University in Texas. This is especially fitting because Joe loved the students of Baylor and had even worked there for a short time. The scholarship will go to a first generation college hopeful, ideally of Native decent.
IMAGINE : A kid with no previous educational hope sleeps in a beautiful dorm room overlooking the 1-35 bridge because a guy called Joe slept under that bridge and inspired hope in others.
