Elijah Alston - 2013 Community Service Scholarship Recipient
"Many people have allowed their circumstances to identify them. They have forfeited their individuality and become part of a larger misconception of who and what the young black male is or can be. I have chosen a different route. My experiences have only made me a stronger individual, emotionally and academically. I want to become something and someone in life, such as an engineer or even a career relating to Mathematics. I am motivated to better myself as a person, and also as a student. I am encouraged to become more of a leader. I refuse to become another victim to the life in the projects. Furthering my education is the only way to break the shackles this environment has placed upon me. I have worked hard to get into college and make a positive difference that will later positively impact others and my community."
We congratulate Elijah and wish him continued success as he embarks on the next phase of his journey.
