I am being recognized and celebrated for my community service by The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) and America's Promise Alliance with the Scholar of Promise AwardAmerica's Promise Alliance strives to celebrate and recognize those who make a positive change in the community.

What Is America' s Promise?

America's Promise - The Alliance for Youth, a nonprofit organization whose founding chairman is Gen. Colin Powell - is heading a national movement to rebuild the nation's commitment to its young people. America's Promise seeks commitments from individual citizens, schools, organizations, agencies, corporations and communities to ensure that young people have access to five fundamental resources necessary to become successful adults.

Those resources are: 
  • an ongoing relationship with a caring adult - parent, mentor, tutor or coach;  
  • safe places and structured activities during nonschool hours;   
  • a healthy start;   
  • a marketable skill through effective education; and   
  • an opportunity to give back through community service.
