The STG Team is proud to announce the Guns Down Books Up Scholarship in honor of Birdell Beeks and her love and commitment to the north Minneapolis Community. Ms. Beeks was a loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister and Aunt that was innocently killed by gun violence in north Minneapolis on May 26, 2016. North Minneapolis has been plagued with gun violence over the past several years. This Guns Down Books Up $500 Scholarship will be provided to one high school student and one college student. The STG team hopes that this scholarship will encourage students to choose education over violence.
