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 Amber Stone of my alma mater Bullis and I'm asking for you to donate to our scholarship fund in Amber's honor.
Amber Stone, a shining 9th grader at the Bullis School, has been a BSF Scholar since elementary. Amber welcomes academic challenges, having received honors on the National Spanish Exam in April 2015. Amber also enjoys school clubs and is a member of Bullis' lacrosse and field hockey teams.
Amber is also an active member at Adelphia Baptist Church. At her church Amber is a youth leader, a member of the choir, and reads scriptures during the worship service. Most recently Amber led the youth's Black History Month Celebration. Since 3rd grade Amber has been involved in CityDance - a recognized arts and education leader in the DC metropolitan area on a mission to transform lives and communities through dance. In her free time she enjoys sewing, dancing, and writing short stories. Amber is outgoing, warm hearted and quick to offer a hug to those in need.
