March Madness Scholars is aiming to raise $5,000 to support 4 scholarships for the Be A Leader Foundation. Be A Leader works directly with middle and high school students attending schools exhibiting low college enrollment. Many students participating in Be A Leaders's programs are the first in their family aiming to attend college. Be A Leader works to get students focused on attending college and earning a degree. (4) Four scholarships of $1,250 will be awarded this May to Be A Leader high school seniors admitted to College for the Fall semester.
The March Madness Scholars initiative was launched in 2017 and raised over $3,000 in its first year to provide three students with critical scholarship dollars. We hope you enjoy hearing from two of our leaders below!
