A profile of Tammy Zywicki, as described by her family: Tammy was a person with many qualities and interests. She was a good student, but did not think that grades were the most important aspect of a college education. She tried to achieve a balance in life of study time and relaxation time. She believed that you should work hard and play hard. She was always willing to try something new and achieve success at whatever she attempted. She liked to stay active and found many interests in her free time. She was a photographer for many years. She was always taking pictures with the hope that she would become good enough to make that her life's work. She participated in sports for exercise and also for the friendships she could make. She loved cats and shared a special language with them. Most of all Tammy valued her relationship with her parents and her 3 brothers. She felt family was very important and made special efforts to stay in touch at times when she was very busy. Tammy had a lot to offer, but her life was cut short before she could get started. The scholarship recipient should be someone who in his or her own way will continue what Tammy started.
