The PC Scholars Program improves the lives of select African-American high school students through four key areas:
Students focus on academic achievement,financial literacy, resiliency skills, healthy living and each year our students do a Day of Caring where they give back to the community.
Our scholars meet twice per month on Saturdays throughout the school year . The students are expected to stay in the program through until they complete high school. Students are then enrolled into our PC Scholar Alumni Association where they are eligible for scholarship dollars as well as assistance during their college process.
The PC staff works with guidance counselors in the recruitment of students
Once applications are received the PC staff reviews each application which includes basic information, GPA, career choices and two essay questions
Students must meet the following criteria
I graduated from Cuyahoga Community College in May 2013 with an Associates in Exercise Science and currently attend Baldwin Wallace University for Athletic Training & Exercise. I now work as a fitness instructor at Lifetime Fitness.
The benefits of being a part of this program are countless. I have gained information on college, high school and life. I have also made connections with amazing people. The funding from The Presidents’ Council Foundation helps me pay for my education that I would not be able to afford. The funding helps me pursue my career and help me influence the lives of other people the way The Presidents’ Council has influenced me.
I am expecting to graduate from Tri-C with an Associate degree majoring in Criminal Justice. I am a graduate of the Police Academy and I work as a dispatcher for the North Randall Police Department.
