Today, we must all help educate our young people. Every year since 1982, a scholarship has been given in the name of our father Pressley Green, a 1931 graduate of Cass Tech. He personally financed the college education of several young people in our community. The Pressley Green Scholarship Fund was established after his brutal murder by two misdirected youth, lost in the pursuit of life.

Now, individuals and corporate leaders also fund scholarships. This allows the awarding of more scholarships each year. We know that the need is great because we receive between 75 and 100 applications each year. Today, in addition to the Pressley Green Scholarship, we have the Herman B. Howard Scholarship, the Alex & Nancy Allen Scholarship, the Techinician Award, The Reasonover Best Scholarship, and the Sommers Schwartz Silver Schwartz, P.C. Scholarship. All of these scholarships are in the amount of $1000.00. Vincent and Betty Little have contributed to numerous $500.00 for a book awards. Let us add your personalized scholarship to this list.

Many families, groups, and corporations have the desire to give a scholarship but do not have the time to devote to the process. Let us help you make this dream come true. Here is how it works:
