Dear AdNet Employees, Customers and Friends;
Each year, AdNet offers a $1,000.00 scholarship to college students. Often, financial aid can start to dry up along the undergrad and graduate school journey or life impacts one’s ability to pay tuition. This is when students with dreams, delay or give up completing school. Any individual with a desire to put in the time and sacrifice to receive a college degree, deserves to finish and often it takes a village to make that happen. I’m sure many of us on this email had to apply for financial aid, take on loans and work their way to finish school. That experience taught me a great deal about navigating the education financing system as well as managing money to make monthly student loan payments. I only needed to hear one time that I might have to come home because we could not afford my schooling which forced me to cast a wider net for grants/loans.
Today marks 11 years that my brother Tommy (Fr. Tom) passed away. He left behind a legacy of love across all the congregations and people he was in service to and believe me, Tommy was truly in service. He welcomed everyone at God’s table and had a gift for softening the hardest of hearts.
In his memory, AdNet will offer two $1,000 scholarships in 2022 for any student from a diverse group impacted by discrimination. A way to build strength in our youth is to through education so they may go on to lead and make our world a better place. They are our hope for the future.
