Nothing excites me more than having the blessing and opportunity to work with and inspire the next generation

A strong foundation that was set by his mother, Sonya Chatman-Davis and step-father, Ray Davis equipped and prepared Tyus to be where he is today. Growing up, he was fortunate to have had opportunities and resources that he needed and wanted, which were not readily available to others in the community. As Tyus matured through the years, he knew that becoming a voice and light to others would allow children to look up to him and be the support they needed.

The Bowser Foundation and its logo represents hope in achieving dreams and looks to be a benefit to the communities it serves both educationally and motivationally. Tyus strives to create a culture of pride when others see the brand and what the foundation truly stands for. He has watched others with capabilities and talent, but due to their circumstances, went unnoticed and didn’t get the chance to live up to their greatest potential.

The Tyus Bowser Foundation is a support system and an outlet for others to achieve their dreams to become what they are destined to be in life.

It is Tyus’ hope to become a difference maker and provide opportunities to those who will benefit, grow, and utilize the resources that are provided through the foundation the same way he was given that chance when he was young.
