Announcing the Zoyer Zyndel scholarship fund at Fresno State!

When I heard about the passing of Zoyer Zyndel over the holidays I was just heart broken. Like many others in our community I have nothing but good things to say about him. Zoyer was one of the first community leaders to jump on board and publicly support the old Queer Fresno. He worked tirelessly and spent time working all over the community. Consequently, my heart leaped in my chest when I heard that on behalf of family members and friends Peter Robertson was spearheading a new scholarship in his memory. Here are the details from their press release:

Local LGBTQ activist and social justice advocate Zoyer Zyndel (2012, ’17) was an officer with Fresno State United Student Pride, and later served on the leadership team of Fresno State Rainbow Alumni and Allies Club. In his memory, family members and friends have established the “Zoyer Zyndel Scholarship Fund” to assist future MSW students in the College of Health and Human Services at Fresno State. A $25,000 goal has been set to endow this fund that will provide annual awards in perpetuity.
