Boyd Tinsley Helps To Pay For Kids’ Music And Tennis Lessons

The city schools are celebrating a $75,000 grant from the Boyd Tinsley Fund and the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation. The grant will support music, tennis and academic programs across the school division. It will cover private music lessons as well as tennis racquets and lessons. Tinsley (pictured) is a 1982 graduate of Charlottesville High School, and a violin player for the Dave Matthews Band. He’s also a UVA graduate, and a past speaker at one of the University’s Valedictory Exercises.
