Congratulations to Tavon Daye, our August Scholar of the Month. Tavon completed training at CCBC and received his computer repair certification. He is 23 years old and was born and raised in Baltimore City. He hopes to set a good example for his two younger sisters by earning certification and skills education to help him begin his career. In his own words, he writes, “My professional goal is to get all of the education and training that I can get so that I can prepare for an excellent career to support my family, instead of struggling with a nine to five at McDonalds.”
Unfortunately, Pell grants and financial aid are not applicable to Tavon’s training program. He is from a low-income single-parent home that does not have the financial resources to support Tavon’s educational pursuits so he turned to Central Scholarship. After receiving The Legg Mason Scholarship Fund for Vocational Students, Tavon thanked us “from the bottom of my heart.” Central Scholarship’s vocational training scholarship application is open year round and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
