Fund named after beloved Special Education Professional
Leesburg, Va— April 9, 2018 — The Paxton Trust is pleased to announce the creation of the Anthony “Tony” Seang Memorial Scholarship Fund, posthumously named for a Loudoun based Applied Behavior Analysis therapist who recently lost his three-year battle with cancer at just 38-years-old. At the time of his cancer diagnosis, Tony was a teacher/therapist who worked with students at The Aurora School on the Paxton Campus in Leesburg.
“Tony put his heart and soul into teaching children with disabilities,” said Jennifer Smith, CEO at The Paxton Trust. “This scholarship allows Tony’s memory to live on in making sure kids with autism get the therapy they need.”
The purpose of the Tony Seang Memorial Scholarship Fund is to fund special education services, especially ABA Therapy, for children with autism.
Katie Wilcox, a Board-Certified ABA therapist and president of Behavioral Momentum, LLC, remembers Tony’s love for his favorite football team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
“Tony was a huge Eagles fan, so we’re asking supporters for a special donation of $41 to this memorial fund,” she said. “The Eagles scored 41 points in the victory at Super Bowl LII, and I really wish Tony was here with us to witness that sweet victory.”
The first fundraiser will be hosted by Behavioral Momentum at Delirium Café in Leesburg at 6:00 pm on April 28. All funds raised will be contributed to the Tony Seang Memorial Fund. The Paxton Trust has been serving children in need in Loudoun County since 1922. Other donations to the scholarship fund or the Paxton Trust can be made at https://paxtontrust.org/donate/.
