Memorial scholarship fund started
To honor the memory of Roddrick Isom, CHJ Academy is offering a tutoring scholarship to a struggling learner. Roddrick’s young life was cut short recently in an automobile accident. He was a graduate of the academy. Mrs. Jones, director of the academy, remembers Roddrick as a very determined and dedicated student. “The recipient of the scholarship must demonstrate the same qualities,” said Mrs. Jones. He was CHJ’s first student.
The recipient of the scholarship will receive several fringe benefits. In addition to free tutoring, the academy will provide fees to take the pre-SAT and SAT; assistance with college or trade school applications, including travel expenses to visit several institutions of higher learning; fees for a tutor, if needed, until the student graduates from college or trade school; and a monthly allowance while attending college. “The recipient of this scholarship is going to have the same opportunity to succeed in life that I feel Roddrick would have had,” said Mrs. Jones.
To apply for the scholarship, (1) The student must be a struggling learner. (2) The student must write a short essay stating why she or he deserves the scholarship. (3) The parents must also write a short essay stating why they feel their child deserves the scholarship. Do not be concerned with grammar or spelling. Just write the essay based on your feelings. (4) The essays must be postmarked by Jan. 31.
Roddrick’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Isom, will choose the winner, and the recipient will be announced in The South Reporter. The academy does not discriminate and encourages all ethnic groups to apply.
Mail essays to: CHJ Academy, P.O. Box 21, Red Banks, MS 38661.
