    Be the First One Scholarship Fund

    A “generational curse” refers to a negative cycle of behavior patterns, practices, or mind-sets that are transmitted from generation to generation.

    Growing up in a family where a generational curse has been carried on makes it easier for children to become the next ones to carry the torch and more difficult to break the trend.

    Rather than be the next one to carry the torch, the mission of the “Be The First One” Scholarship is to provide students impacted by generational curses the opportunity to achieve greatness and be the first one to break the trend in their family.

    Two (2) $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to high school seniors located in South Carolina who
    are committed to becoming the first one in their family, not the next one.
