This endowment is established in memorial of Stacy Ireti Akinyemi, who was an amazing gift from God that was treasured by her family and friends.
Stacy Ireti Akinyemi was born on Sunday, October 1, 1989, in Fort Worth, Texas to the proud parents of Yinka and Nadine Akinyemi; and as a Princess in the Akinjobi ruling family of Owu Kingdom. She was one of four siblings, an older sister, Natasha, and twin brothers, Ryan and Alan.
Stacy had an infectious smile that could enlighten you with so much happiness. She loved God and served as a youth teacher at New Life fellowship Church. Stacy also had talent for art and fashion.
Stacy attended The University of Texas at Arlington and later transferred to the University of North Texas where she graduated with a Bachelor degree in Merchandising. She returned to the University of Texas at Arlington and was pursuing a double Master’s degree in Marketing and in Finance while working full time. With her strong passion for Christ, Stacy was really looking forward to making a difference in her community. She felt that completing the MSMR program would give her the necessary tools to make an impact. Stacy's 3 written goals were: 1. “To be a Servant leader”. 2. “To know truly who I am in Christ”. 3. “To do all things for God's glory”.
