Each year the Pressley Green Scholarship helps young people get closer to their dream of higher education. With your help, we can continue to making a difference.
Pressley Green Scholarship
The Pressley Green Scholarship was established in 1982 in honor of Pressley Green, a successful business leader that realized that he had to help our young people reach their goals. He did this by personally financing the education of many young people in the community.
Mr. Green was brutally murdered by several misdirected young men, lost in the wrong pursuit of life. Today, Urban Solutions, Inc., a non profit 501 (c) (3)corporation continues this tradition with the generous help of the many, concerned community leaders, friends and family members. Our young people are the future and they need you.
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 difference between attending and not attending school. We have found that only a $1000.00 to $1500.00 can make the difference.
