Omicron Nu Lambda chapter of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity held its seventh annual Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Breakfast on Saturday.
Carl Millsap, a member of the fraternity and its education director, said the chapter wanted to find a way to recognize young people in the community.
“Some people don’t have an opportunity to go to college financially. It’s a struggle sometimes. So we wanted to find a way to give back to our community,” he said.
Millsap said throughout the year they’ll raise money from community leaders and organizations to contribute to the scholarships.
A total of $5,000 was raised and divided between four local students: Elahna Thompson, David “Kye” Boyd, Gabriel Rosario-Marzan and Cooper Landes.
