“It’s so exciting to see students rewarded for academic achievement,” Sampson said. “Keep up the great work. This is only the beginning.”

Selma City Schools Education Specialist Mariama DeRamus said the scholarship recipients displayed potential at a younger age in the SCS system. 

“These inspiring young ladies have been breaking down barriers and making strides since Brantley Elementary School,” DeRamus said.
