In Memoriam

Tonya Muro

Tonya Muro

Dr. Tonya Muro died suddenly on March 5th, 2018, the cause is still not known. But in her 48 years she accomplished so much, and touched so many around the globe as she tried to make the world a better place. Tom Brokaw honored Tonya with a “Brokaw Scholarship “ that helped her complete her Masters and PhD in International Education at Columbia Teachers College, which led to a Fulbright Scholarship and a year in Tanzania helping to support her research for her dissertation on the Aids Epidemic and its impact on the defenseless girl child. She was the executive director at IEARN-USA when she passed.

Tonya is survived by much of her family, and her twin 7 year old girls, for whom a gofund me page has been created. If you would like to give to her children's trust, you may do so here: https://www.gofundme.com/t4auh-tonyas-funeral-expenses
