Dear Friends of Tory DeOrian, we want to establish an endowed named scholarship in our Art Department at Cal State East Bay in Tory DeOrian's name.

This means that every year the art department would award a scholarship to a student in Tory's name. To do this we need to raise a minimum of $25000. Every little bit will help to reach out goal.

Tory did a lot of work for Snapchat, Taco Bell, Starbucks. If you know anyone that works for these companies please let us know and help us reach out to them

Victoria Rose DeOrian, known by most if not all as "Tory", first shined her bright light in to the world on November 5th, 1991 in Berkeley, CA. Her sun set on Saturday, October 14th, 2017, but will shine on forever in our hearts .

Tory attended St. David Elementary School, graduating in 2005, and graduated from Salesian High School College Preparatory in 2009. Tory is a graduate of California State University, East Bay, 2012, with a B.A. in Graphic Design, and also proudly holds a certificate from the University of California, San Diego Children's Book Writing and Illustration Program. Tory was also a graduate of the Walt Disney College Program in 2012, with a Certificate in Creativity and Innovation, and The Art of Makeup in 2015 in Portland, OR., with a certificate in Pro Makeup Artistry.

Tory was passionate about and proud of her work with special needs students at California State University, East Bay. She affectionately called her students her "ducklings" Tory was a vibrant, beaming girl who lit up every room she walked in to. She loved to design and create, and has spent her life filling the world with her beautiful art. She lived by a simple rule, and that was to be positive and be kind. Her favorite quote was "Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air." by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
