Building the Village Scholarship

Derrecka Ellis

 

Last year, my best friend and I had the vision to find a way to give back to the students of East English Village Preparatory Academy.

As graduates of Finney High School and Central Michigan University, we knew that it was important to help students who experience the same educational and economic backgrounds as us.

We first started with talking to students about life after high school  and now we have created the Building the Village scholarship!

We are giving a $500 scholarship to any senior at East English Village Preparatory Academy who have a minimum of 3.0 GPA and will be attending any accredited post-secondary education. (University, Community College and trade school.) 

We created this scholarship with the help of Joanne McClure, who also assisted us with all of the necessary tools to prepare us for college.

If you know a senior who attends EEVP, please inform them to visit Mrs. McClure office for application requirements and details.

Application is due May 1st.

As a community, WE can create an individual impact on our own village. Please feel free to reach out to us if you want to donate more to the scholarship, create your own scholarship, or provide any product/service for students.

For further information, please use my contact page or email: info@IMAEDesigns.com 

(This does not have to be for East English Village Preparatory Academy or Detroit Public School students)
