Local scholarship to be established for Black male student

Citing disparities in test scores and graduation rates for Black students in the Durham County area and the sometimes prohibitive costs of college attendance for those who overcome these odds, a local group plans to establish a scholarship to help fund the opportunity for a young Black male to go to college.

In reflection of the many Black leaders who have made this country great, it is encouraging to see a community coming together, looking in commemoration of that past for inspiration to support the future of leaders in the making.
