Tougaloo selected January 2018 School of the Month by the Tom Joyner Foundation
The Tom Joyner Foundation (TJF) has selected Tougaloo College as the January 2018 School of the Month. As a result of this special designation, 20 Tougaloo students will be awarded scholarships. These scholars must exhibit academic excellence, leadership skills and community service.
Carlos D. Smith, Tougaloo College National Alumni Association President and newly appointed Board of Trustee member, remarks on the importance of this prestigious honor. “This is a tremendous honor for Tougaloo College! Any opportunity for the College to be promoted is counted as a “plus”. Scholarship dollars are few and competitive. This is even more magnified at small, private colleges: and when you add “historically black” to that equation, the dollars really become obscure.”
“I recall the appreciative faces of students who felt dejected and rejected because they just could not find all the funds needed; then, a small $500 or $1000 scholarship would be made available. These scholarships allow deserving students to continue their education. Many students have benefited from the scholarships offered at Tougaloo College and current and future students are also deserving of that benefit through the generosity of our friends. With such support, Tougaloo College can continue offering education to those who otherwise may not have an opportunity and to those who want the luxury of attending a special place like Tougaloo College,” adds Smith.
