TCPS is honored to announce the foundation of
The Victoria Kirtay Memorial Fund.
A valued community member and a former TCPS parent of two, Victoria Kirtay lost her battle with cancer in August, 2017. Her family is honoring her memory by establishing The Victoria Kirtay Memorial Fund at TCPS. Victoria was born in Gunnison, Colorado. She attended the University of Colorado, Boulder, where she earned a BA in Biology. She also earned her MS in Environmental Sciences from Bosphorus University, in Istanbul, Turkey. Victoria then worked for the US Navy as a Research Scientist in the Marine Sciences Division. As a lover of travelling, cooking, and swimming, Victoria graced us with the presence of a very warm, caring, and thoughtful individual whose love for her children was always her highest priority.
Victoria was a strong supporter of education. She believed in the importance of a strong, integrated and hands-on approach to science, and since her parents were both artists, she passionately believed in the value of art as part of a well-balanced education. Victoria’s memorial fund has been created to support the arts and science at TCPS. We are truly honored to support Victoria’s memory in this way and cannot thank the Kirtay family enough for this act of generosity. If you would like to donate to her memorial fund, please contact our office. We look forward to carrying on Victoria’s legacy through art and science education.
