The Recipient Scholarship Foundation Impact

Deja J. McDowell:

“I am currently a freshman Elementary Education major at Jackson State University, who plans to pursue a teaching career upon graduating in 2019. After graduation, I will seek employment at a local public school district with hopes of inspiring other students to achieve beyond high school.  

After being awarded the BLM² Scholarship, I was able to focus on what is important for me…my education. Your generosity has allowed me to get one step closer to my dream of getting a college degree.  I hope one day that I will be able to establish a scholarship opportunity, to help other students achieve their goal, just as you have helped me!”


James Jones:

“My first semester was a pretty good learning experience. It was tough getting used to a new environment and increased work, but overall it helped me to grow as a student and a person. My GPA for last semester was 3.447; not that bad, but there's always room for improvement. I am very grateful for the scholarship given to me for it has helped me buy my books and gather other materials for my classes. Thank you so much for your support.”
