Celebrating the life of Alexa Robinson

The family of Alexa Robinson has turned to The Shelby Foundation to establish a scholarship fund in her memory.

Scholarship Established in Memory of Beloved Coach

In September, the Shelby community lost a beloved teacher, coach, and role model. Understanding the depth of his impact, the Zuercher Family made the decision to keep Terry’s legacy alive by establishing a scholarship in his memory.


The Shelby Foundation is a nonprofit organization that gives back to Shelby’s community and surrounding areas by providing donors an opportunity to positively impact Shelby’s future.

The Foundation does this by providing financial assistance to schools and other nonprofit organizations to expand programs, enhance arts, culture and humanities, and support improved health and welfare services. In short, the Foundation assists the community where we live, work and love by making it better.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to learn more about giving opportunities with The Shelby Foundation.
