Program 1

Held a virtual 21st Anniversary Celebration program which aired on our YouTube Channel. Grammy Award winner Debbie Sledge of the Sister Sledge Family delivered the dynamic keynote address. Awarded 48 scholarships for a total of $65,000. All the recipients received a minimum of $1,000. This was due in part to a large grant we received from Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria, VA in 2021. With these funds, we were able to increase scholarship amounts for 18 critical need students by an additional $760. Twenty-two students are pursuing STEM majors, including nursing. We were entrusted with five additional memorial scholarships for Patterson, Costley, Boyd, Bell, and the Mastermind Group which will be awarded in 2023. We now manage 31 scholarships.
