“Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church’s Annual College Scholarship fundraising efforts are always an exciting time for both the scholarship recipients and our congregation as a whole,” said Dr. J. Lawrence Turner, MBCC senior pastor.
Turner said young people look forward to scholarship activities because it shines a light on their, and it helps them take pride in their pursuits and gives them confidence.
“Providing scholarships to graduating seniors, not only helps the young person financially, but also gives them confidence and accountability because their church community believes in their academic potential,” Turner said.
Marcia Wright called the financial support “an amazing opportunity” to receive a scholarship from her own church.
Turner said the scholarships are more important than ever for young people aspiring to attend college.
