100 Black Men of Greater Orlando, Inc. inspire student community involvement and leadership.
Orlando, Fla. – McCoy awarded a college scholarship for a Jones High School student in Orlando, Florida through the 100 Black Men of Greater Orlando, Inc. Project Success Program Scholarship. “What They See Is What They’ll Be” epitomizes the servant leadership of the members and the program’s foundation.
100 Black Men of America’s local chapters shape skills that help students transition to the next stage of education, work, life and leadership. Members serve as positive role models, advocates, and trusted advisors to inspire students to realize their highest potential by creating viable solutions for issues affecting African American youth, families and communities.
Project Success is a nationally recognized post-secondary preparation, tuition assistance and mentoring program for public school students—100 Black Men provide tuition-assistance scholarships for all Project Success students who graduate from high school. The program can begin as early as middle school and can continue beyond college.
Bryce Logan, L&N STEM Academy graduate, confirmed the program’s positive influence on his future, “Since I was 12, I would spend at least one Saturday a month exposed to new mentors, guest speakers, career professionals, and dignitaries, including the Mayor and City Council representatives. Watching my mentors in different scenarios has shown me how to act and conduct myself. I’ve watched how they treat and address each other with respect. My mentors are a part of the reason why I am the young man that I am today.”
Since 2003, 100 Black Men of America has awarded over $1.2 million in college scholarships nationally.
