Each year the Foundation in conjunction with the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Epsilon Upsilon Omega Chapter holds a reception to recognize our scholarship recipients for that year.
The event is usually held in June where we welcome all awardees and their families.
The program includes a message from a former scholarship recipient. Additionally, we showcase the talents of award winners and youth that we mentor.
Our goal is to bestow 10,000 dollars in awards each year. Our Chapter AKA organization since its inception in 1952 and subsequently the Foundation has committed to assisting our youth in pursuit of higher education.
In 2018 we established an additional scholarship, the Betty Vaughn Coles Scholarship, in memory of Betty Vaughn Coles who was passionately dedicated and committed to education.
This scholarship will be given annually to a graduate of Trenton Central High School for educational excellence and commitment community. The award will be presented at the annual Scholarship Reception.
