College Trunk Initiative
Man of Valor,Inc., is excited about its continuous support of graduating seniors at the University City High School, through its College Trunk Scholarship Initiative. This is the 2nd year that MOV, has been able to support seniors going to college though the support of Royal Banks of Missouri and All Nations Church.
The seniors from the graduating class of 2018, were the first recipient's of the initiative. Man of Valor,Inc., President and CEO, Bishop Luther D. Baker, wanted to be able to do something for the seniors who were going of to college and make the transition less stressful. The vision came to light while talk with a first generation college student. MOV gave a way 15 trunks in its 1st year. The class of 2019, had 25 seniors to receive college trunks.
The trunks contained comforter, bedding sheets, laundry bag, first aid kit, desk lamp tablet, hangers, clock with usb connectors, and batteries. To top it off each senior received a bag of kisses from Hershey for something sweet.
The eligibility requirements were:
-Must be a graduate from UCHS
-Accepted in a two-year. four year college, or non-profit technical/trade school.
All students who were interested in competing for the scholarship had to submit a completed application. The application included a 200 word essay(Why Do I Want To Go To College). High school transcript and one letter of recommendation from teacher, coach or community leader. We had over 65 applications and 25 received trunks.
It is the goal of Man of Valor,Inc., to grow this initiative and be positioned to give a trunk to every graduating senior that can show a letter of acceptance. We take great pride in giving back to our scholars and helping them to start their journey for four of the greatest years of their life.
