Solomon Hunter Jr. Legacy Fund


“This scholarship is for students whose high school journey in Coatesville is similar to mine academically, with the hope they will be inspired by the lessons of hard work and believing in oneself. While I struggled with my studies, I excelled as an athlete in high school. As a runner, it was my hard work, persistence, and determination that made me a success. Leaning on this background, I learned how to become a determined and high achieving student. My hope is that these scholarships will go to students with dreams seemingly beyond their current academic circumstances, who would otherwise not receive the opportunity”.
