2016 Ndukwe Foundation Scholarship Winners
In appreciation of Chinedum Ndukwe Day, proclaimed by The City of Cincinnati on February 10, the Ndukwe Foundation wanted to take an opportunity to give back to our great community. On February 16th, 2016 the Foundation launched its first annual college scholarship application, open to high school seniors in the Greater Cincinnati Area. Scholarship applicants submitted brief essays describing how they have demonstrated leadership, a commitment to their community, and an entrepreneurial spirit throughout their high school career.
On May 28th, 2016, the Foundation presented Antonio Wooten and Olivia James with the 2016 Ndukwe Foundation Scholarship. Antonio and Olivia embody the core values of the Ndukwe Foundation, and we were pleased to award them each with a $5,000 scholarship towards their college tuition.
