Faith Melody Woods is (was) my mother. She passed away when I was born. In honor of my 25th Birthday and the 25th anniversary of her wrongful passing I wanted to launch a scholarship that embodied everything she was.
I have always been told that she was a woman of great passion, sacrifice, conviction, and intelligent. I like to think that even though she didn’t get to see me grow up, that she did hand down those traits to me. That and her singing voice.
But, my mother never let anything stop her and I believe she wouldn’t want anything to stop anyone else from pursuing their passion and dreams.
The Faith Melody Woods Memorial Scholarship seeks to offer ten (10) $50 scholarships to help offset the cost of Black/African American undergraduate students’ graduate/professional school application fees.
The deadline is October 14th at 11:59PM
