Change Starts Here

Pi Iota Education Foundation has worked with parents, teachers and counselors to empower and support our youth in the Tampa Bay Community.

 This support is provided through education, events, cultural activities and scholarships.  We believe that education is the key to building bright futures, strong families and even stronger communities. 

The Foundation provides annual scholarships and comprehensive youth enrichment programs focused on education, character, and leadership development.  

The Foundation executes its own revenue generating events and initiatives to support Foundation programs and scholarship grants.

We proudly serve more than 200 youth each year.

Garland V. Stewart

Named after long time Hillsborough County Educator Garland V. Stewart, the event awards outstanding students in our community, scholarship money and book stipends. Our aim is to support student access to college.
