MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Seven siblings are helping high school graduates further their education.

The five brothers and two sisters started the CCTaylorFoundation based in Holly Springs, Mississippi, to honor their parents.

They are hosting an event in nearby Memphis on Saturday to award undergraduate scholarships and raise money to help more students.

This year, 13 individuals will each get a scholarship of up to $1,000 to help them during their first year at a higher education institution.

Marjean Taylor-Myatt is one of the siblings. She says she hopes the foundation's scholarships will ease the financial burden many students face trying to get a higher education degree and allow them to focus more on their studies so that they can get the jobs they want.
