Talen Charles Birt Memorial Fund

Talen Charles Birt

Talen Charles Birt passed away on August 30, 2021 at the age of 16 after a valiant battle with osteosarcoma.

A National Honor Society scholar and talented athlete at Kirby-Smith Middle School (Springfield Middle), Talen was an inspiration to many as he endured the surgeries and chemotherapy necessary to try and combat his terminal bone cancer. His response to his diagnosis was, “God is positive. So, therefore, I am positive.”

Education was an important part of Talen’s life—so much so that his Dreams Come True wish was to be at Andrew Jackson High School for the first day of 11th grade in mid-August. His visit to campus was cheered by his classmates, the principal and the superintendent. Talen’s ambition had been to attend FAMU/FSU and obtain a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He hoped to get married and have children.

In honor of Talen’s life, his family and friends have established the Talen Charles Birt Memorial Fund. The fund will provide scholarships to defray the cost of college attendance for graduates of William M. Raines, Jean Ribault, First Coast, or Andrew Jackson High Schools.
