Could You Spare the Time To Read?-- Let's Make a Difference

As we approach a new school year and see the preparation for the next "Class of Students", I wanted to reflect and catch others at the "beginning of this endeavor", because it will make a difference.

In the end, my vision is my vision, but when it manifests, it impacts many. I am on a journey or can I say a quest to make an impact on the "true meaning of -- I am my brother's keeper" I also want to place understanding in the phrase: "Knowledge is Power, if used properly".

One of my contribution to society is providing an educational portal to those seeking knowledge. I have been blessed that I have brought into existence a dream into an actual resource. My goal is to allow the portal to be one of the biggest/greatest educational resource infrastructure for students, parents, undergraduates and graduates students.

I created my blog, "Planning and Preparing for College: Scholarships, Internships, Etc" from the urging of my son. The blog is National and is located at http://www.ctherd.blogspot.com.

My quest is that people, especially African Americans will use it and share the blog with others. I also want to help to place individuals on the correct timelines for preparing for college and obtaining scholarships, internships, fellowships, etc.

I know that the information in the blog works. I was blessed that my children were able to recieve over 1 million dollars in scholarships and offer and attend the college of their choice. The information on the blog has been helpful to many parents/students as well.

Below are 2 articles I wrote called "Survival of the Parent" and "Volunteer":

Survival of the Parent


As always share the blog located at http://www.ctherd.blogspot.com with others so that they can prosper as well.
