Duterte Insurance Group, a family owned insurance firm with offices that serve Laredo and the surrounding communities, and Project GRAD (Graduation Really Achieves Dreams), a Houston-based non-profit, are teaming up to raise funds that will be used to establish a memorial scholarship for Terri Duterte.

Terri was a beloved middle school teacher in Pacifica, California before her life was tragically cut short after a battle with cancer. Terri dedicated her life and effort to her teaching, and both Duterte Insurance Group and Project GRAD are working to establish a scholarship fund that will be available to underprivileged and at-risk minority youth within the Houston Independent School District.

"Terri gave her life to teaching, she worked hard to ensure her students received a proper education, and this scholarship will be the completion of her life’s work,” says Keefe Duterte, owner of Duterte Insurance Group. “Terri lives on in all of us who knew her, and even more so in the students who will benefit from her legacy thanks to this scholarship.”

Duterte and his team are reaching out across Texas and beyond to gather support and donations from leaders in business, the educational system, and local communities in an effort to establish the Terri Duterte memorial scholarship for at-risk youth. The team is also building an online social media presence that could pull in even more support from communities across the nation.

In addition to working on establishing the Terri Duterte memorial scholarship that will benefit at risk youth in the Houston area, Duterte Insurance Group has actively assisted a number of other local charities and causes as part of an ongoing community involvement campaign, and plans to work with at least one new charity every two months going forward.
