The recipient of the 2014 Emma L. Cunningham Memorial Scholarship is Gregory Stewart from Garner Magnet High School. Gregory will be attending North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro the Fall of 2014 majoring in Finance. The Scholarship will be presented to him at the Awards Ceremony on May 12, 2014. Excerpts from Gregory’s essay:  “I've matured in many ways and place values on intangibles in life such as my health, stability and family. My junior year had the biggest impact on my life so far and has shaped me into the young man that I am today.  I truly understand the value of helping others.”  We will continue this unrelenting quest to help those students in need so that Emma's legacy will flourish.

Update on Gregory

We’ve received updates from our past scholarship recipients, and we’ve seen the impact that the award has had on their continued education as well as their career. Today, I wanted to share an update from our immediate past recipient, as we near this year’s application deadline. If you are eligible to apply, please do so today. We see from Gregory’s update that it can have not just a lasting impact, but an immediate impact–and kickstart your college education.

Here is an update, in Gregory's own words: 

”I am doing great and my first semester at North Carolina A&T State University went well. I made the Deans List and I also received a 4.0 gpa. I really got involved during my first semester and was a participant of four clubs. Some of these clubs include: Financial Management Association, Toastmasters, National Association of Black Accountants and Intramural Flag Football. Being involved in these clubs kept me busy most of the week but I really enjoyed it. I also went to the career fair and I currently have two internship offers. I also have received interest in a couple of other companies and they want to stay in contact with me throughout my college career. Next semester I will be going on a ski trip with some other students and faculty members from my school. College has been amazing so far and I’m looking forward to my spring semester.”

It’s great to hear from you, Gregory–and I wish you continued success in school.
