I'm fundraising to support BSF's Fund-a-Scholar Program!

I'm asking my friends, family, and professional colleagues to support Black Student Fund's social fundraising campaign Fund-a-Scholar.

For over 50 years, the BSF's comprehensive programs have helped underserved students achieve success at local independent schools. Through the Fund-a-Scholar program, BSF matches donors to BSF scholars for a social fundraising campaign. My BSF scholar is Clinton Wallace and I'm asking for you to donate to our scholarship fund in Clinton's honor.

Clifton Wallace, Jr. is a 15-year old Sophomore at Gonzaga College High School. He has always been an Honor Roll student and he continues that high academic standard while attending Gonzaga. Before coming to Gonzaga, Clifton graduated Valedictorian of his elementary school, Saint Francis Xavier, graduating with a 3.8 gpa. He is currently on the Varsity Black Rugby Team and he was on JV/Varsity football team last fall, where they were the DC State Champions. Clifton is also a member of the Onyx Club at Gonzaga. A few weeks ago, Clifton helped to prepare a meal and fed the homeless men at McKenna Center.

Apart from Gonzaga, Clifton is very active in his church, Tenth Street Baptist. Clifton serves as Vice President of the Junior Usherboard, member of the WOW Choir, member of the Sunday School, and Step Team. For the past few years, he has assisted with the distribution of clothing and feeding the needy with UsherBoard Number Two with their Fall Bazaar. Upon graduating from Gonzaga, he would like to attend college and study engineering.
