I believe we all have a responsibility to help others. Scholarships enable, create opportunities, and uplift individuals and communities, so I choose to make this small investment.

I am a big proponent of higher education. I enjoy encouraging and directing students on how to identify ways of minimizing their financial burden when attending a college or university.

PARTNERSHIP

I grew up poor. Scholarships offered an opportunity to achieve an otherwise unreachable goal. Understanding how those scholarships made a difference in my life, I simply wanted opportunities to return the favor.

When people understand what they can do, they can use that knowledge to make more effective decisions. Making students aware of the resources that are available can help make the impossible, possible.

Education is so important, and there are many kids that don’t know the process. So sharing my knowledge with others thru this outsource is liberating to me.

Scholarship Mission

We recognize the importance of education, which is why our vision is to assist graduating high school seniors attend an institution of higher learning.

  • We do our best to expose students to information on colleges and scholarships, encourage taking the SAT/ACT (identifying resources to assist with fees);

  • Meet with students early to spur them to think about the upcoming year, where they are and what they need to do.

  • We conduct interviews and with the funds we have we provide scholarships.
