The Tribute to Valor Foundation was founded in 2018 as an all-volunteer organization focused on influencing, impacting and inspiring students involved in STEM curriculum. Our goal is to help these students understand and engage the values of the Medal of Honor; Courage, Sacrifice, Patriotism, Citizenship, Integrity, and Commitment.
We also provide students with the opportunities to meet and learn from wounded, ill, or injured service members, and understand the importance of STEM and how new technologies have been critical to improving their quality of life and that of their families. Engaging young people with these veterans gives the students a unique perspective of the positive impact STEM can make in the lives of others.
We accomplish our goals by working with school districts and bringing Medal of Honor Recipients, those who have earned our nation’s highest award for valor in combat, to engage with students through assemblies, workshops, presentations and unique immersive experiences. There are only 70 living Recipients of the Medal of Honor – true national treasures that are committed to “paying it forward” by instilling in young people the responsibilities of being Americans, and to demonstrate those special values of character in their lives.
