A Thank You from a  2014 Scholar Recipient 
"I first would like to thank you so much for giving Detroit Public School students the opportunity to gain financial assistance in college through your scholarship. Being recognized as a young black male receiving a scholarship says a lot about my dedication towards my education. Receiving the award has given me great pleasure, excitement and relief from all of my hard work that has been put in for the pass four high school years." J. Clarke
