In April of 2015, tennis lost a great person, advocate and ambassador. Mary Lloyd Barbera's life was cut short, but her spririt and legacy live on. Mary Lloyd was the Director of Marketing for USTA North Carolina. One of her many tasks was to administer USTA North Carolina's Camp Scholarship program which differs slightly from the NCTF program. In an effort to honor Mary Lloyd's memory, the NC Tennis Foundation and USTA North Carolina are creating a hybrid of the two progams. The NCTF's program is based on family need and USTA North Carolina's program is based on merit.
The NCTF will make available two full camp scholarships based on family's income of $99,000 or less and the applicants' merit for this scholarship. "Merit" will be described below at the appropriate place.
