Our Objectives:

Recognize students’ desires, needs, and excellence by awarding grants, internships, seminars, and scholarships. The Foundation favors educational programs and opportunities that encourage students to release their creativity, inspire them to learn, and empower them with self-confidence.

Provide community-based general educational support by serving as a bridge between area school systems, and the public and private sectors.
