2017 Scholarship Recipients

High School Senior – Scholarships & Book Awards

Each year students are selected that have proven themselves academically and have demonstrated a comment to the community. These scholarship funds are used for gap financing where a few dollars will make a difference between attending and not attending school. We have found that only a $1000.00 to $1500.00 can make the difference. While many financial resources for your youth have vanished, other committed community leaders have joined Urban Solutions, Inc. In addition to the Pressley Green Scholarship given since 1982, the Herman B. Howard family and Sommers Schwartz have joined our effort.
