On April 19, 2007 Andre Terrell Booker died in an automobile/motorcycle accident. Although it was a tragic loss, we have decided to turn it into a positive. Andre stated many times that he wanted to give back to his community. In September of 2007, family and friends of Andre formed The Andre Booker Foundation in his memory. The mission of The Andre Booker Foundation is to invest in the students through scholarships for education and to provide community services.
The Andre Booker Foundation is a nonprofit 501C(3) foundation providing higher education scholarships to high school students in the Schertz, Cibolo, Universal City, and San Antonio, Texas metro areas. The Andre Booker Foundation works with local school districts to provide scholarships for students that might not have the opportunity to otherwise receive help for higher education. The Andre Booker Foundation’s goal is to give back to the students in memory of our beloved friend, brother, and son Andre Terrell Booker. Andre had a commitment to young people, to promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and assert a sense of hope in the future. His dream was to develop strong character traits and return to his hometown to help others do the same.
Our scholarships are awarded to students involved in sports and other extracurricular activities and exhibit high moral values. By supporting the youth in our communities, we can continue the work Andre was interested in.
Over time, The Andre Booker Foundation will create a scholarship fund that will be an invaluable resource to young people dedicated to reaching their full potential. The Andre Booker Foundation established an endowment for students attending Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. Your support of The Andre Booker Foundation will benefit the youth of our community and help them achieve their goals and dreams.
