Our Founder | Thena Monts Norman
I came upon the idea of establishing a scholarship fund, as I had seen throughout the years how so many of our students were qualified to attend a college or university, but for the lack of financial resources a higher education was unattainable. I believed by establishing a fund, we as a people could help our aspiring students acquire a college degree. I went to my spiritual leader Bishop Dr. Barbara Lewis King and asked her for her guidance and encouragement, and through those conversations the Barbara Lewis King Scholarship Fund was established.
It has been 20 years since this fund was created and I am proud to see the idea of establishing a scholarship fund to help our students has not only come into fruition but has helped a large number of students achieve their goals and aspirations.
