Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) is proud to announce that the Tayar family of Abington, PA is sponsoring the Gabe Tayar Memorial Award to benefit one student from EASTERN’s Culinary Arts program at EASTERN’s Awards Night on May 27, 2015.
This award is in memory of Gabe Tayar, the older brother of current Culinary Arts / Abington High School senior, Estey Tayar. Gabe lost his battle with cancer seven and a half years ago. The Tayar family has sponsored various awards in Gabe’s memory over the years, and has chosen EASTERN for 2015.
The EASTERN Culinary Arts instructors will choose a student who meets the criteria set by the Tayar family. The student will be a graduating senior who has risen above challenges that may include developmental, physical, health or a learning disability, or has gone above and beyond to assist students with the above mentioned disabilities to meet their educational goals. Estey and her mother, Barbara, will present the award to the student at EASTERN’s Awards Night.
“Each year, we search for new ways to honor Gabe,” said Barbara Tayar. “Estey has flourished in the Culinary Arts program at EASTERN, and we feel as though this is a great way to help a student who has overcome challenges of any kind, or to the student who has gone above and beyond to help those with challenges.”
Culinary Arts at EASTERN enables students to acquire a variety of skills including soup and sauce preparation, preparation of meat, fish and poultry entrees, baking, kitchen sanitation, purchasing and inventory controls.
For those interested in donating to the Gabe Tayar Memorial Award, please send checks made payable to “EASTERN Foundation” to 3075 Terwood Road, Willow Grove, PA 19090. Please note “Gabe Tayar Memorial Award” in the note section.
