“It’s not about you. It’s not about me. It’s about our children.” –Oscar Wright
In 2016, National African-American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID) was celebrated at South Shore PK- 8 School in Seattle. The event called for one hundred Black men to greet and usher students into school with enthusiastic high fives. In an extraordinary act of civic involvement, 256 answered the call.
ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP
A Detroit-based organization that learned of NAAPID’s success pledged in 2016 to grant $10,000 scholarships to ten Black male high school graduating seniors from the Seattle area. This organization never fulfilled its promises to these young men which significantly and negatively impacted their educational plans.
Raise $100,000 for college scholarship awards by January 31, 2019 through charitable giving (corporate, individual and community-based donations) to restore the promises made to these young men.
