Antiquita | NAZ Scholar at Cookie Cart, Cookie Cart Youth Employee

"I'll be going to Normandale College for PSEO. I'll be able to use any of their stuff on campus; I'll be able to use the weight room, the swimming pool, the computer lab, the library -- so basically it's like I'm going to be an official student at Normandale and also be a student at South. I have a lot I can say I'm proud of, but that's something that I really had to push for." #NorthFaceFriday

IMG_8691

Our first-ever NAZ college scholarship was awarded to NAZ scholar Jamal B. on July 30, 2014, thanks to the generosity of a local family foundation. Jamal is a recent graduate from Edison High School where he overcame obstacles to become an outstanding student, athlete, and leader.

“Because of your hard work you’ve grown into a great role model—not just for your family, but for the entire community. Our boys are looking up to you,” said NAZ President & CEO Sondra Samuels.

Jamal was surprised with the award while surrounded by his mother, his Connector and the entire NAZ staff. “Look around the room and you’ll see ‘Team Jamal’. We have your back and will be your support system through college,“ said Education Director Jaimee Bohning.
