The Black Scholars Community Partnership was formed to dispel such myths. Our vision is simple: We seek to develop an educational community in which hard work, success, and superior performance are universally recognized, respected, honored, and rewarded. African-American scholars who are achieving academically have a unique need for such support. The Community Partnership is committed to meeting this need.
Each year, through a cooperative and expanding effort with 28 high schools, principals and guidance counselors, the Partnership honors more than 400 high school seniors from throughout Westchester County who have maintained honor roll credentials during their high school years. These students are eligible for scholarships, book awards, and essay contest prizes to help prepare them for college.
The Partnership also recognizes teachers who have motivated and inspired our Black Scholars. At the end of the academic year, students receive the opportunity to submit essays nominating an instructor for the Teacher of the Year Award. The nominees have earned the respect and admiration of their students, and have played a significant role in their academic and personal development. The winner is honored at the annual Black Scholars Recognition Reception, held at Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York.
All of our awardees follow in the footstep of academic excellence.
As they achieve their golds they demonstrate the best our community has to offer
