The Fernand & Viergina Backer Scholarship Fund
This scholarship was created in honor of this blessed couple who dedicated and sacrificed their lives to educating their children. They strongly believed that education is the key that opens doors of opportunities. They came from humble beginnings; but, their faith in God with a focused lens on a bright future for their children allowed them to provide the necessary tools to ensure that all their children achieved their highest level of self-expectations. They never ceased to be in pursuit of their dream of having successful children who are grounded spiritually, socially, emotionally and financially. Because they have given so much of themselves, their children saw that it was befitting to create this scholarship in order to provide youth empowering opportunities for a propitious future. This scholarship will be financed ONLY by the Backers.
Anyone who is a recipient of this scholarship must have the qualities that this couple embodied, zealous, studious, community wellness, determination and a spirit-filled soul. The Backers will be part of the selection process for this scholarship. We invite those who are qualified to apply.
Bert Leon Strong Scholarship Award
Bert Leon Strong valued the psychological completeness of education and was a clear and big picture thinker. He admired people who exuded confidence, grit, and determination. He was a gentleman, great storyteller, fun-loving, curious, and careful observer of human behavior. He never took anything or anyone for granted. People were attracted to his unapologetic manner, which came about from knowing exactly who he was and what he represented. He wrote incessantly about his life’s journey; thoughts and findings on law, education, politics, capitalism, labor, and religion. He was a proponent of critical thinking; defined as reasonable rational thinking that helps us decide what to do or to believe. He voraciously read and listened to lectures by the foremost thinkers on Black empowerment, scholars who made an impact on thought and inquiry, and interested in the safety and self-sufficiency of people. He was passionate about the upliftment of Black personhood. His love for great literary works was rivaled by his love for family, music, and the game of chess. He was loved by many and Igbo friends of Nigeria gave him the name Chukwuemeka which means God has done great things for me.
Guy Blaise Scholarship Fund
The Guy Blaise Scholarship Fund is created on behalf of our beloved brother who highly esteemed education, hard work and commitment as the backbone of creating world leaders. The family would like to keep his memory alive and connected to the moral values that he exhibited during his lifetime, which was incomparable. It is for this reason that his sisters saw it fit to start a scholarship fund on behalf of Guy Blaise. Every year, a well-deserved youth, of immigrant descent would be awarded with the Guy Blaise’s Scholarship through a non-profit organization, Making the Impossible Possible, Inc. (MIPO) that Guy trusted and supported.
Every fall, MIPO hosts a Youth Summit in partnership with other organizations to empower middle school to college students. This is an educational and fun event that require active and committed participation from scholars. This needed opportunity offers scholars networking, connections and an opportunity for high school seniors to earn a scholarship on the spot. We encourage students, educators, mentors and service leaders to register as a group for this event.
Fall 2020 Youth Summit - Date TBD
