An education in today's society is an imperative for anyone desiring to build a sound future. One of the biggest obstacles high school students face is the daunting task of securing financial resources to cover the cost of higher education.
As a means to aid in lifting that burden, Naway Ministries, TCDC, and The Tabernacle have partnered to offer scholarships to two African-American seniors in high school in order to assist with post-secondary education.
