What Bright Mind, Bright Future Scholars Say...
“ They have enabled me to have a lease on life and a better education than I ever dreamt.” – Van Johnson

“One of the major things I had hoped to accomplish being a part of the scholarship program is to be a testimony to all public school students whose heart’s desire is to attend a private institution and unfortunately are not financially able to do so." - Schicquelle Johnson
