    Marie Jean Baptiste Memorial Scholarship
    To whom it May concern, I, Dontae Stringfellow Jr. I’m writing to express my desire to attend college to further my education after graduation. I grew up in a very small town in Louisiana and after my mom married, I moved to Arkansas in 2017 and enrolled into Strong High School to finish my education. While enrolled at Strong I participated in the following activities: Captain of Boys’ Basketball Team, Beta Club Member, Honor Roll student k-12th grade, Usher Actively at Church, Martin Luther King Jr. Student of the Year Award recipient 2024, Awarded All- State (Arkansas Basketball), Drive Safe Participant, and Xtreme Club participant. My plan is to begin my career path for the fall semester of 2024 as a New Undergraduate to study Kinesiology or Sports Education with hopes of becoming an Athletic Coach one day. For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed playing sports and have a strong passion for basketball. I’m particularly excited about the opportunity to attend college. My parents have worked very hard to provide for me unfortunately due to how expensive things are I’m trying to alleviate some of the cost for school by applying for a scholarship to help me further my education. I would be the first member of my family to benefit from a four-year university. My goal is to use my education and give back to the community in helping young kids in the athletic field. Upon my college graduation, I would like to Coach high school sports with hopes of coaching at the college level one day. Sports and learning new things have always been my passion. If chosen I give my word that I will do my very best to adhere to things I have written in this essay. Thank You, Dontae Stringfellow Jr.

Upon my college graduation, I would like to Coach high school sports with hopes of coaching at the college level one day. I'm asking to be considered for this scholarship because I feel I can make a difference with helping and teaching kids. It is not only my dream but yet a personal goal of mine that I will one day like to achieve. Although I know there will be more trials ahead and once I enter college I will face thigs of the unknown, however I'm up for the challenge because again this is my dream and I always tell people you never know how your dreams will end if you don't chase them. So with that being said I hope this gives you the best idea of who I am along with my hopes, and dreams. If chosen I give you my word to adhere to the things I have wrote in this essay. Thank You, Dontae Stringfellow Jr.
    Joan Free Thompson Scholarship
    This scholarship will help me pursue my college education. My hopes are to one day become a coach to help high school kids in sports and education. I have always enjoyed helping others and since I love sports so much I feel as this would be the best thing for me to do. I would like to obtain my degree in sports education or kinesiology with a minor in education.
