Janie Mae was an incredible mother who faced many obstacles in her life but she never made excuses and always remained optimistic and kind.

Janie Mae lost her mom at the age of nine and had her first child at just thirteen. As a result, she was never able to finish high school, and by the time she was 21, she was the mother of six small children but she didn't allow that to stop her. Despite the hardships she faced, Janie Mae never felt sorry for herself.

As a single mom, Janie Mae worked several jobs to make ends meet and at the age of thirty-five, she was able to purchase her first home and opened the doors of Mama Jay's Daycare which was geared to show love and support single mothers, low-income families, and anyone in need. Janie Mae made it her life's mission to instill the importance of a good education and to ensure that every child who walked through her doors received their high school diploma.

Because of her efforts, she witnessed 100 percent of those kids receive their high school diploma and over 40 percent go off to college. She was able to witness the career success of her six children which include a teacher, a nurse, and an HBCU University President.

This scholarship seeks to honor the remarkable life of Janie Mae by supporting students who share her commitment to living with love and service.

Any high school senior who demonstrates kindness and love and has community service experience may apply for this scholarship opportunity.

To apply, tell us about yourself and how you’ve been able to make a difference in your community through your acts of service and compassion.
