Solomon was born in Miami, Florida in 1994 and moved to Alabama at 4 months old. He spent his whole life in Alabama even though he traveled to several different states during his lifetime.

He had numerous interests and was very hard working. He loved people and did whatever he could to help anyone he could. After graduating high school, he attended junior college and universities studying various interests. He faced challenges due to his mental illness but did not use that as a barrier or excuse.

Solomon was a blessing to all he came in contact with. We are honoring his life by paying it forward to others who live in Alabama and have an interest in Business, Computers, Engineering, Music, or Psychology.

This scholarship seeks to honor the memory of Solomon Vann by supporting students in Alabama who have encountered mental illness either themselves, a family member, a friend, or an acquaintance.

To apply, please answer the prompt below.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
