Scholarships for Low Income Students

By Toby / September 26, 2008

The Vindicator, a leading newspaper of Youngstown, OH, recently wrote about the Self-Expression and Leadership progam project of Keith Coleman, who teamed up with his brother Kevin to form a worthy scholarship fund.

YOUNGSTOWN — A runathon has been scheduled from 3:30 p.m. Thursday at Wick Park as an inaugural fundraiser for the Otis Christian Scholarship Fund.

The goal is to raise $10,000 to be used as tuition for a deserving low-income minority student to attend Ursuline High School.

The event has been organized by Kevin and Keith Coleman in recognition of the influence Otis Christian has had on their lives by making it possible for them to acquire educations.

Residents are invited to pledge runners per mile or to make lump sum donations.

Since this appeared, The Vindicator published a quick follow up report:

More than 20 participants took part in a runathon Aug. 21 at Wick Park to launch a fund-raising campaign for the Otis Christian Scholarship Fund.

The Otis family, friends, and members of Ursuline Cross Country Team raised more than $1,000 at the event.

The goal of the campaign is to raise $10,000 for a scholarship that will enable a deserving low-income minority student to attend Ursuline High School.

For more information or to donate to the fund, contact Kevin Coleman, (614) 264-7430, or Keith Coleman, (330) 402-2995.
