Earlier this year I came up with an idea to start a college scholarship program as my way of giving back to individuals, like myself, who were pursuing higher education. Having limited resources, I decided that that was not an excuse to hold off on executing my plan. So I went on ahead and launched the DreamHouse “Make A Difference” College Scholarship opportunity this past July. There were only two requirements to apply: college enrollment and a 500-word essay. Students would have until September 30th to submit their essays, and myself along with my review committee, whom I recruited for this particular project, would choose what we thought to be the best essay. The winner would receive a $500 prize.
With that said, I’d like to congratulate Mr. Christion Pettaway of Mount Vernon, New York. Christion is a Freshman at SUNY Delhi and is currently majoring in Architectural Design and Building. Christion submitted an essay on strengthening communities, concentrating on the concept that it takes a village to raise a child. “Since the youth are the future, it is in the best interest of everyone to help them be the absolute best that they can be.” I agree with that 100% Christion! Congrats again! Me and my DreamHouse family wish you much success in all that you do. Keep winning!!!
