Story of Fund
This fund was created by Sara Berg and Ron Tzur in memory of their daughter, Shiri Berg. Shiri was a straight A student and graduate of State College Area High School, class of 2000. Shiri was the first chair flute and piccolo player in the high school's Concert, Symphonic, and Marching Bands. This fund continues her passion for music.
