Against the Odds Scholarship Recipient
You can make it if you try! We are pleased to award Malachi Swindler a Scholarship to apply towards his academics at North Carolina A&T State University. He is all settled in at college and working towards an Engineering Degree.
We have watched Malachi’s journey, provided mentoring services, supported him with referrals when needed and has been his biggest cheerleader. What makes this award so special is that he became known to us as a boy who wanted direction and sort out help from two partners with Pitt County Family Development Corp., Inc. He had men that went to his sports engagements, went to some of his school functions, provided guidance in applying for college and counseled him on money management when he started to work.
We will follow this young man, providing support and encouragement as he needs it. The goal is to watch him walk across the stage at his graduation.
