I thank the foundation for their hard work and continued dedication to supporting students financially as they seek higher education, and I thank Dr. Barbara for being the catalyst behind the work that’s being done. The physical form of these scholarships may be money, but the real substance of them is hope, faith and determination."

"My name is Mikayla Boyd and since receiving the scholarship I have been attending The University of Arizona in Tucson. I have become a member of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars and was offered two positions at the Think Tank, which is the tutoring program for the university. I work as an Academic Skills Tutor, so I help students that visit the Think Tank looking for advice on a personal level and academic level and I am also a Schedule for Success Mentor, so I help freshman that have been placed in a specific math class with their organization and different study strategies to insure that they are able to succeed not only in that math class but also at the university. Without the BLK scholarship I would not have been able to attend The University of Arizona and would not have been able to have the opportunities and experiences that I have been fortunate enough to have."
