Scholarships Readily Available for African Americans

Please forward list to perspective graduates who may qualify for some of these scholarships.  Please share with your family, friends, religious groups, social organizations, political organizations, fun groups, etc.

 

Even if you do not have a college-aged child at home, please share this with someone who does, pass this scholarship information on to anyone and everyone that comes to mind. Though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated monies for scholarships use to African Americans, a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest.

No one is going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a scholarship. Take the initiative to get your children involved. There is no need for money to be returned to donating companies because we fail to apply for it. Please pass this information on to family members, friends with children, etc.  We must get the word out that money is available. If you are a college student or getting ready to become one, you probably already know how additional money can help.  Our youth really could use these scholarships.

Band of Brothers

This touching poem was sent in to us in memory of SSgt. Larry Moore, USMC.

Band of Brothers
For Larry

I’ll be there

at close range

or far away.

I’ll be there,

with a shouted

word of warning,

or a whispered prayer.

But I’ll have your back

and I’ll be there.

Here and hereafter when

we stand guard on the

wall – you know – the

wall that stands & defends

the halls of Heaven against

all the portals of hell,

well, I’ll be there too.
