Hello, my name is Imani Thomas, I am a bisexual, African American High school senior. Growing up my family didn't have a lot, my mom grew up very different from the way I did and she wanted to give me the best life she could with what she had. I attend a mixed race high school, with multiple different races and ethnicities , however funding is low and often I feel I have to try hard to stand out among so many other students like me. I wasn't able to do a lot in high school, because I transferred in the middle of my sophomore year. I planned to do more for my community this year, however COVID-19 affected my plans drastically. With this being my last year of High School, I want to make sure I'm set for college without having to rely too much on my parents. I am very grateful for the opportunity to hopefully be considered for this scholarship, thank you!

Hi my name is Bryson Battle I am a rising senior in High school as an African American going to a predominantly white High school I always felt watched in a way, like people always there eyes on me but that just gave me more of a reason to stand out in a positive way. I was the first and only person to come out as gay in my in my student class which was hard but ultimately made me who I am today which is a smart, kind, hardworking, talented, individual who this scholarship would mean so much to. My parents have provided any and everything I’ve ever needed for the past 17 years and college is one of the most expensive but fulfilling things to come along in a young persons life so recovering this scholarship would mean so much to me and my family and help further my journey into the real world. Thank you for offering this opportunity to students like me and I hope you will consider me for the scholarship.

Remembering 9/11

September 11, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America. We honor those who lost their lives in the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, as well as the first responders who gave their lives rescuing survivors, and the passengers of Flight 93 who thwarted the hijacker’s plans. The events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of all Americans and redefined a generation. Now, even in the midst of another national crisis, we feel it is appropriate to take the time to remember this tragedy. [...]
