We sincerely thank everyone for supporting our mission. We are extremely grateful for your encouragement and donations. It is our pleasure and honor to announce our 2017 scholarship recipients. Both recipients are honor students with excellent academic, leadership, and community involvement records.
MICHAEL MONGOY is a young man with a strong passion for learning and service. He will be graduating from Rolesville High School with honors and plans attend either East Carolina University or UNC-Greensboro. He plans to major in biology with aspirations of going to medical school.
I have learned to be a leader. I am lucky to be a part of the Congolese Community. One important mindset I have learned from the Congolese Community is to help those that cannot help themselves. I have learned skills, adopted habits and augmented a mindset that will not only help me succeed in college, but also in my future career in medicine. I will use my experience to be a better member of the community by setting an example to the younger members.”
While at Rolesville, he is a member of the National Arts Honor Society and has served as Treasurer for the past two years. He is a co-founder of a tutoring club which assists students struggling in math and a mentor to freshmen students. Michael is a member of the Spanish Honor Society, Rolesville High School Honor Roll student, and a member of the men’s tennis team. He serves as an editor for the Spanish school newspaper IR-El Informativo de Rolesville, which translates school information to Hispanic families. Michael has contributed many hours to Habitat for Humanity by helping with the construction of affordable homes for those who are in need. He has received several awards including a nomination for the African American Overachievers Award and Kappa Nu Scholar.
Malaika is a hard-working young lady with a strong will to excel in all that she does. As a student at East Wake High School, she maintained an excellent academic record while participating in various school activities and community services.
She is a member of the Honor Roll, National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Beta Club, and Student Government. Malaika was named the most valuable player on the East Wake Tennis Team. She is a member of the Jazz Band and the Japanese Culture Club. She also serves a Sunday School Teacher at her church, and has contributed to the NEA’s Read Across America and Toys for Tots. She has earned many awards including having the Highest GPA in English, Perfect Attendance, Kappa Charitable Trust Fund Achievement, Most Improved Student, and Principal’s List.
Growing up in the Congolese community, one is told how education is essential and how important it is to strive to be the best. I personally take these lessons to heart.
Malaika has yet to decide on which university she will attend this fall, but we are sure that her determination will lead to successful future. Congratulations, Malaika. Continue to make us proud!
