Education Visionary Writes: Scholarship Deadlines Approaching...Apply Now!!!

Guys, I need your help in ensuring that we get the message out to our students and parents that they must apply for scholarships, fellowships, internships and summer programs. We have the power to make a difference in the distribution process, but we must come together and help one another and retreat back to "I am my brother's keeper approach". In the end, we grow when our legacies or children grow. It is also important that we create workshops for students/parents to help them utilize the internet and understand how blogs work. This would make a big impact, because knowledge is power, if used properly.

In the end my vision is not your vision, but when it manifests it can be used by all whom want it.

Two of my special poems are: The Man Who Thinks He Can and Our Deepest Fear. Both poems are inspiring and allow you to challenge yourself and not be afraid to shine because of what others may think.

On, March 8, 2008, I will be a presenter at the Black College Expo in Atlanta, I invite all those who can to come on down to one of the greatest tours in the country. I am thankful that the founder, Theresa Price believes in my contribution to her program. To get additional information on the Black College Expo visit

There are so many individuals helping to spread the blog, Planning and Preparing for College (Scholarships, Internships, Etc) and I say thank you. I have been added to many of their websites/blogs as a college resource. Many of the deadlines are approaching and need to be utilize now and not later.
