I write this blog with excitement yet humility to notify you that I have been selected as a finalist in the NBA/BACARDI Gold Standard National Scholarship competition. I am 1 of 24 individuals across the country who have already received a $10,000 scholarship, and I am in the running for an additional $30,000.
12 individuals were selected from the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund and 12 Individuals were selected from the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. From each organization they will select 1 male and 1 female to win the additional $30,000.
Here is where I need YOUR help. 50% of the votes will come from the NBA/Bacardi Selection Committee AND 50% of the votes will come from the public. Voting will begin
very soon, but until then a brief clip is posted at http://www.nba.com/video/channels/originals/2011/04/15/goldstandard_keyon_mitchell.nba/index.html
providing information on why I am a good candidate for this scholarship. Please comment on the video if you feel called to do so.
I will let you know when the website to vote is released from the NBA/Bacardi scholarship committee.
I would greatly appreciate if you could vote for me to win this additional $30,000 scholarship. It will be and IMMENSE help to my financial situation by funding over 90% of my Masters Program at USC where I am studying Health Social Work.
If you can spread the word in anyway possible, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you so much for your time and support. I am more than grateful.
