AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS ARE NOT APPLYING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS:go to our scholarship list

Even if you do not have a college-aged child at home, please share our list of scholarships with someone who does, and to anyone and everyone that comes to mind. Though there are a number of companies and organizations that have donated money for scholarships to African Americans, a great deal of the money is being returned because of a lack of interest or awareness.

No one is going to knock on our doors and ask if we can use a scholarship.  

Take the initiative to get your children involved. Money shouldn't be returned to donating companies because we fail to apply for it.

message from Harold Hamilton:

You know how they say that there are not enough African-American males in the school system.  Well there are plenty in the jail system, and the majority of them do not have a high school education.  Ever think that some of our young men perhaps don't finish school because they don't understand the importance of education?  Perhaps it was because there was NO ADULT there that looked like them at the school they attended.  In today's world, it is NOT uncommon for an African-American child to attend all 12 years of school and NEVER have an African-American Male Teacher!

Well the 100 Black Men of North Metro is going to REPRESENT!!!  Imagine this: 20 successful African American males all converging at one school on the same day!!!  Image the impact that we will have on that school.  Real men giving real time to make a difference. On February 3, 2010 from 8:30am - 3pm, we will be at North Springs High School visiting classes.  And guess what - the teachers are ecstatic!  15 teachers have already requested us to attend their classes - some for an hour, some for 3 hours and some even all day!  What a glorious sight...20 of the 100 Black Men of North Metro Chapter Members all dressed in suits - coming to share their stories and words of wisdom!!

Subject: THANK YOU - 100 Black Men of North Metro

 

Gentlemen,

 

My heartfelt thank you to all of the brothers of the 100 Black Men of North Metro! Also, a special, special thank you to the gentlemen from Lockheed, EMC, and other organizations, who worked side-by-side with our membership. The students, teachers and administrators of North Spring Charter High School (NSCHS) were impressed and amazed. I am confident that our efforts at NSCHS will pay dividends today, tomorrow, and well into the future.

 

Brothers All....WELL DONE!

On behalf of Dr. Lisa Stueve and the North Springs Charter High School Community, I would like to thank the 100 Black Men of North Metro and all others that gave of their time and talents to the students of North Springs. I have not heard any thing but positive comments regarding the event.

 

Thank you again for your participation.

Dr. Stueve,

 

I just finished a conversation with my freshman about her day at high school. As she said, "it was very cool!" referencing that particular period in which she got to listen to a Medical Doctor talk about his profession and his experiences in an Emergency Room. The depth and breadth of NSCHS's science curriculum was one of the main reasons we chose to send Madison to North Springs. Madison thinks she might like to be a doctor. Having the opportunity to hear a doctor's real life experiences in the medical field as well as answer questions about that profession was a terrific bonus for her (and for us). Thank you for making that happen with 100 Hundred Black Men!

Dear Mr. Handy,

 

I wanted to thank you for your time today. The students were completely engaged with your story. I know that they took away a new found hope after interacting with you. Your ability to relate to them and understand where they are coming from was a wonderful asset to the class.  I couldn’t wait to send this because I could feel a life being positively affected by your story. I will beam the whole day because of that. As you saw yourself, the class is full of bright young men and women who for varying reasons need encouragement. My first period class is Basic Read and Write. It is an elective class for 9th graders who need remediation in reading and writing. I have Marquaise and Keyonna in my lit class too. I believe that Marquaise may volunteer at the aquarium and I’m thrilled that he sees more opportunity/options in his immediate future than he did. Again, thank you.

Joseph,

 

On behalf of North Springs Charter High School, we would like to thank you for your time last Wednesday. The students could not stop talking about how impactful your story was and how “real” you were. It is always a rare delight to have a guest speaker in class, but it is surprisingly refreshing when the students receive as much out of it as I do. I am sure that you do not have the opportunity to do many classroom visits in your line of work, but it seems that you have a natural gift with young people; you are welcome to come back whenever you would like.
