Earlier this year, we announced the launch of the Deborah White Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor the memory and legacy of our founding executive director, Deborah White.
Since our announcement, we’ve received an outpouring of support with gifts coming to us from all across the country. JT White (Deb’s son) and his family and friends have raised more than $10,000, which is enough to fully fund a student sponsorship for one of the incoming Scholars who will begin in our program in the fall of 2019. He even hosted a tiki-themed party at Franklin Alley Social Club in Troy to raise funds and welcome friends earlier this month.
Now, JT and his family are beginning to raise funds for a scholarship for 2020. We are inspired by his dedication to our Scholars’ futures. We know his mom would be proud.
